Comment - Despair at vandalism

WITH next year’s Olympic Games hoovering up so much Lottery cash, and a recession meaning deep cuts almost everywhere else, it is a rare treat indeed this year to see millions being spent sprucing up Wigan’s wonderful Mesnes Park.

And all the more dismaying seeing a brainless minority doing their level best to undo it all again.

Council and leisure trust chiefs are becoming increasingly angry at vandal attacks at the park, the latest of which saw a flowerbed destroyed.

If you know who did this, do the town a favour and shop them to the police.
