A second Brockwell Park shelter has been damaged in the space of a few weeks. The vandalism to the shelter on the path between Norwood Lodge and Herne Hill park gate is thought to have taken place over the weekend of 31st January / 1st February 2015. Eight panes of glass have gone completely and a further four have been damaged. The attack, which has been reported to the Metropolitan Police, comes only a few weeks after the tennis court public shelter was burned to the ground by arsonists.
The Metropolitan Police have been informed and will gather evidence. The debris will be cleared once their investigation is complete.
We are saddened by this revolting attack on a public park facility.
If you were witness to any suspicious behaviour around the shelter please report to Paul Carter, Brockwell Park Manager, and he can pass it to the Police. Email: Pcarter@lambeth.gov.uk Tel: 0207 926 6283
Park Watch aims to protect Lambeth’s parks and open spaces from vandalism and crime whilst promoting safety and security for their users. The initiative will provide local people with support needed should they encounter anti social behaviour such as:
- illegal drug use
- dog fouling
- underage drinking.
Another dog was subject to an unprovoked attack in the Park today.
The assailants were three pitbull terriers which were not muzzled and off the leads. One of the dogs is black and grey, one is brown and the other is light brown.
The victim is a former winner at Brockwell Dog Show and is recovering from its injuries. The attack, which took place near the exit to Brockwell Gate development, has been reported by its owner who wants other pet owners to be aware.
