Children had been put in danger by a “senseless act of vandalism” at a Blyth play space, officers say.
A play space on the South Beach property was doused in bleach resulting in Blyth Town Council deploying CCTV gear on Thursday.
Although the gear was cleaned “instantly” after the vandalism was reported by police, officers warned a baby taking part in in the world may have been harmed if the bleach hadn’t been eliminated.
A spokesperson for the city council stated: “Unfortunately we’ve acquired a report from Northumbria Police that there was bleach poured over the children’s play gear at South Beach.
“We are totally appalled at this senseless act of vandalism and the partnership workforce has been deployed instantly to totally clear the play space gear.
“This may have resulted in critical harm to a younger baby on condition that this can be a chemical substance.
“The CCTV digital camera was being redeployed to South Beach play space [on Thursday] following varied different anti-social behaviour experiences in the previous week. We can affirm this can be in place [on Thursday] and any future vandals can be recognized.”
