Fareham Borough Council staff will be at the Holly Hill play area in Sarisbury Green fixing the damaged equipment.

As previously reported, the playground was briefly closed last month by the local authority after vandals wrecked it twice in two weeks.

The climbing tower was set alight and the rubber surface burned by people described by council leader Sean Woodward as '˜low-life scum'.
