'Heartless' vandals target children's play area

Vandals have repeatedly damaged children's play equipment at a park in Exeter, and the city council says it can't afford to keep replacing it.

A trampoline at Cowick Barton playing fields was deliberately set on fire, causing a thousand pounds' worth of damage.

Earlier, a spinning ride had been broken, at a cost of two and a half thousand pounds.

Local councillor Stephen Brimble (pictured) has hit out at the heartless few who're spoiling things for so many people, and is urging anyone who knows the culprits to report them to police.
