Arson Attack on the Bandstand

March 31, 2009


This is what has happened to the bandstand.

The guttering has been deliberately ripped off. The roof inside is charred and partly pulled down. The benches in the bandstand where local youths sit and chat of an evening are blackened and unrecognisable for what they were.  Everywhere smells bad, of smoke and gasoline.


This must have taken place sometime last night.

    I saw the damage as I walked through the circus at 8.50 this morning – a very depressing sight. I live fairly nearby (I can see the circus from my flat) but heard nothing in the night.

    That is very sad, the bandstand is the centre of the community in the area…
