The incident follows similar incidents at Ferry Meadows Park and the Werrington/Walton Rec earlier this month.

John Haste, clerk of Glinton Parish Council said: “I was walking my dog when I found the damage on Wednesday.
“The trees had only been in for a year to 18 months.

“I was gobsmacked. I could not believe what I was seeing. Its a children’s play area. We have had to get a contractor to clear the mess away, as we don’t want to leave sharp bits of the trees.

“If it hadn’t been for the use of the saw I would have thought it was children - but it is obviously premeditated.”

Mr Haste said a decision would be made soon as to whether the trees would be replaced.
