Hurst Grange playground, Penwortham, has been vandalised before it has opened to the public.

Cllr David Howarth and The Friends of Hurst Grange Park have expressed their bitter disappointment in the mindless destruction.

The park received more than £225,000 funding for new playground equipment, which is currently being installed.

Police and firefighters attended to clear up the mess left by vandals, who had knocked over building materials including sand and liquid resin.
