Harry Leach 7th Apr, 2021

A RUBERY councillor has applauded the village’s community spirit after locals cleared up a mess made by vandals over the weekend.

Vandals turned over several bins, emptying the rubbish, in Brook Road Park on Saturday and also damaged a bike stand.

Coun Peter McDonald said: “Brook Road Park is used and looked after by community-spirited people.

“What happened on Saturday was an act of mindless vandalism.

“I must applaud the residents of Brook Road who cleared up the mess first thing in the morning.”

The maximum penalty for vandalising an item, which costs less than £5,000 to repair, is three months’ imprisonment or a fine of £2,500.

If damage is more than £5,000, the maximum punishment is six months’ imprisonment or a fine of £5,000.

Coun McDonald added: “Hopefully they will be identified and the appropriate action taken.”
