The extent of the damage to the play area is not yet known.

Coun Peter Whittaker, Bromsgrove District Council’s portfolio holder for community safety and leisure and cultural services, said: “It’s just a crying shame, particularly as it’s half-term.

“It’s the little children it hurts the most who won’t be able to play outside on there now.

“It also hits everyone in the pocket.

“We are working with the police and will be bringing it back into use as soon as possible.”
