A Limavady councillor is calling for action after concerns were raised about ‘vulgar findings’ at the Alexander Road play park in the town.

SDLP Colr John Deighan said he will be asking Council to explore the possibility of extra security measures at the facility. He also said he’s witnessed the aftermath of antisocial behaviour at the park, including empty beer bottles lying on the ground and underwear left on equipment.

Colr. Deighan acknowledged the hard work of Council to keep the park in a safe and clean state, but said perhaps the gate into the park should be locked in the evenings.

“People are fed up talking about it,” he said.

A spokesperson for Causeway Coast and Glens Council said: “Officers will be reviewing the current situation in all parks across the Borough in relation to condition and security. Due consideration will be given to what options exist in terms of securing each site if there is a proven need.”
