They said it was causing more work for a stretched council team who take pride in maintaining Town Park.

" Although this may be seen as entertainment for some, it is simply causing more work for an already stretched team who take a lot of pride in maintaining our Town Park," said the spokesperson.

"All matters have been reported to the police.

"But please could we ask if you see any vandalism taking place, not to approach anyone, but to report the issue. Thank you."
