A local councillor has hit out at those responsible for causing damage at Crumlin Glen last week.
Councillor Anne Marie Logue said that the damage and vandalism in Crumlin Glen was nothing short of a criminal act wrecking a valuable resource for all the community.
“The damage to Crumlin Glen, both on Monday and Tuesday nights is nothing short of criminal damage,” Cllr. Logue said.
She added: “Capping stones for the flower beds have been smashed to smithereens, rubbish has been strewn from bins and both valuable life rings and traffic cones have been burnt.
“Crumlin Glen is a fantastic resource for our community used by many different groups. It is very unfortunate that at 10am on Wednesday morning a group of walkers who were visiting the glen could not even use the car park given the amount of debris around.
“After much work, including the restoration of pathways following the winter storms and one of the local schools organising a community clean up of the glen, we have a small unrepresentative minority destroying this site.
“I would like to make it clear that this vandalism amounts to nothing more than wanton criminal damage. It is unacceptable and cannot continue. I would urge anyone who saw anything to report this immediately to the PSNI.”
