Stolen digger used to damage children’s playground in Newport

A digger has been stolen from a construction site and used to damage a children’s playground in Newport.

Gwent Police said officers found the offenders had fled the scene at Black Ash Park – leaving a trail of destruction behind them, including a demolished climbing frame and goalposts.

Local councillor Allan Morris said: “It’s the young people and sports teams who will suffer. This has really outraged the decent folk in the area”.

Gwent Police has appealed for anyone with information to call 101 quoting log 390 of 26/2/2019.
