A park in Leeds that was given a £180,000 regeneration grant to install new facilities including security fencing has been attacked by vandals.

Bramley Park was given the fund to renovate the area but two bowling greens have already been attacked by youths after the council removed fencing around the site.

Residents that use the park have criticised the council for poor planning and have urged it to make the building a new skate park to be the top priority.

According to the Yorkshire Evening Post, people in the area believe that the facility will give youth in Leeds something to keep them entertained meaning they would not turn to crime.

Jean Tebbs, from Bramley Bowling Club, told the source: "They have ripped all the felt covers off and kicked the side and the back in. What annoys me is we have gone to all this trouble to get the shelters done, and now it's ruined. The council pulled the fences down too quickly. It’s just open house now."

Vandals also damaged a fence in Wishaw leading to a family dog being unable to walk after injuring itself on the barrier.
