    That's awful! How thoughtless, all the work and money that will cost to be put right, if it doesn't just get left. What a shame.

    Sad that - and such a deprivation of a good recourse from those who deserved to have it there to enjoy. I was going to say it's probably been done by youth whose parents / carers are first in line complaining that there's 'nothing for the kids to do in the town' but probably the culprits are the spawn of people who just don't give a care anyhow.

    I presume no one hopefully was hurt? A bunch of kids from my Secondary school decided to set fire to the spar and steal all the Cig's when I lived in Telford it was the worst fire I had ever seen with a Doctors Surgery on the right of it and homes starting to catch fire also!

    Unfortunately a few mindless few individuals have little respect for anything or anyone there are various reasons for this I think.

    Yes let's hope so. Sadly they will be prosecuted by the soft system we have and given some community service no doubt. Bring back a system of justice I say.

    Whilst I don't disagree with you, I'm pretty sure we have enough young offenders to not actually need to dip into the pool of decent human beings.

    Absolute shame when people do this kind of thing. I don't understand why 'rebelling' is such a big thing for kids of today? And to this degree? This isn't just a group of bad kids, given how often things like this happen, there's something bigger beyond this..

    It said 17 year olds on our local news.

    An Estate Agent in town started a collection and has raised £25K. This has already been ordered and the council hope to have it installed as soon as possible.

    It's called "Planet Fortress" and I can't wait to go on it.
