Newport skate park wall vandalised during repair work

Written on August 19, 2021

A skate park in Newport targeted with offensive graffiti has now been vandalised during repairs.

A brick wall at Norbroom Park was being repaired by borough council workers when it was damaged.

It follows previous anti-social behaviour in the area this summer when the park was graffitied with swastika imagery. Councillors are in talks to have CCTV installed in the area but need to find a suitable power source.

A contractor from Telford & Wrekin Council had started work to rebuild and repoint the wall last week when the wall was pushed over, overnight between August 12 and 13, leaving bricks broken.
