Over the past few weeks several parks in the Newton Aycliffe area have had damage caused to the trees, and also numerous amounts of graffiti damage caused.
Further to this over the past weekend several birds have been killed in the Nature Reserve and also one of the parks.
These parks are open to the public and are generally well maintained and provide safe places for families to play with their children, but also provide suitable habitats for wildlife which lots of the community like to see. It appears a very small minority of youths are wanting to destroy these areas with mindless damage and destruction of birds nests.
Newton Aycliffe Police are asking members of the community who spend time in the parks and nature reserves to be vigilant when in them, and report any suspicious activity which you may see and report it to us on 101.
Thanks in advance
