Council says “Let’s all pull together” after act of vandalism
March 24, 2020
Members of Cramlington Town Council were dismayed to learn of an act of vandalism involving rubbish being set alight in the underpass on Durham Road.
This is one of the underpasses that had just recently been painted by the Partnership Team to improve both the sense of security there and the appearance.
Town Clerk Bob Baker said “It’s just disheartening considering what is happening due to the coronavirus crisis.
Come on everybody – we should all be pulling together shouldn’t we?
There have also been reports of lots of people using Alexandra Park. Whilst we appreciate that people want to exercise can we reiterate that ALL play equipment is out of bounds and people can walk with members of their family group if necessary but must not be closer than two metres to other people.
The police now have the power to fine those seen disobeying the latest government advice. Please use your common sense – it saves lives.”
Councillor Wayne Daley said, after seeing the remnants of the fire, “It is disgraceful that at a time of international crisis, with workers focused on fighting a killer virus, that we have to relocate resources to fight deliberate fires caused by a minority of mindless idiots.
They should be ashamed.”
