DUP MLA Gordon Lyons and Coast Road Councillor Angela Smyth have condemned the vandalism of a play park at Boyne Square in Larne.

In a statement, Mr. Lyons said: “I have been contacted by a number of local residents who are absolutely appalled at the state of the play park in Boyne Square.

“Vandals have taken it upon themselves to wreck and tear up the ground surface of the park, ruining the experience for local children and their parents. This reckless behaviour only serves to damage the reputation of the area and I would ask any local people who witness such behaviour to call the PSNI.”

Councillor Smyth added: “The destruction of this play surface is appalling and local residents are rightly outraged. I have been in contact with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council and have been informed that this will be fixed as a matter of urgency. Local residents should report all anti-social behaviour to the PSNI.”
