Police has appealed for information following a spate of vandalism at a Denbighshire park.

Officers say they will adopt a "zero tolerance" approach in dealing with those responsible for incidents at Lower Park, Denbigh, and are monitoring the area.

Broken glass has prevented skaters using a new skate park, and there have been reports of anti-social behaviour.

Anyone with information is asked to call North Wales Police on 101.

Insp Dewi Roberts said: "Local police are monitoring the area and have an ongoing operation and enquiries which will identify the offenders as regards offences of vandalism and anti social behaviour.

"We want to assure local residents that I expect zero tolerance from the local officers when it comes to dealing with vandalism and anti social behaviour."

Jamie Groves, head of Denbighshire's Leisure Services, said: "It is terrible that skaters are not able to use the new skate park because of the vandalism and broken glass that is there.

"They are now having to go to Ruthin and Rhyl to practise and this is not acceptable."
