Local Police have recently issued publicity alerting members of the public to an appalling and horrendous act of taping razor blades to the sides of a slide in an Aughton children’s playground.
Rosie Cooper MP commented:
“This is a vile and horrendous premeditated act of violence targeted at innocent children and the culprit must be found as quickly as possible. The extreme pain and distress this could have caused a young child and their family would have been devastating.
“How sad it is that parents now fear and must be extra vigilant in checking the safety of children’s playgrounds.
“I have written to the Police and the Council to ask for action to try identify who did this and request regular monitoring of our play areas to ensure they remain safe for our young people to enjoy.”
