Vandals have destroyed parts of Lord Street Bandstand

Council Officers were called to Lord Street Bandstand early this morning (Thursday 26th July 2012) following reports of broken railings and benches.

They found ornamental railings scattered in and around the bandstand gardens.

A council officer collected the broken cast iron pieces of railings and stacked them in a pile ready to be taken away.

A local shopkeeper said: “teenagers have been using the bandstand as a playground. They connect their music amplifiers to the bandstand electric box and blast out music and annoy the general public and holiday makers night and day. They have recently been using the bandstand for tight rope walking and other past times”

“What’s happened to OUR so called Sefton Security who are getting paid to patrol council owned property?”
