A COUNCIL has been urged to install CCTV to help tackle further vandalism at a town park.

Following an incident last month in which arsonists attempted to torch a wooden at the bowls club area of Whitworth Park, the police have advised Darley Dale Town Council to consider installing equipment.

PCSO Granville Nixon, of the Darley Dale neighbourhood team, said: “There’s nothing overlooking the park and we can’t be there 24/7.

“We need to look at ways to protect the area because we have nothing to go on.

“If we can identify these people then we can begin to take action.”

The bench was dragged out of position to a covered area of the bowls club and set alight.

The centre of the table was left charred.
