PARK play equipment is at risk unless people show more respect for their surroundings, a community council has warned.

Smithton Community Council was reacting after a spate of littering at Smithton Park.

Volunteers helped to tidy up Smithton Park this afternoon, during which they managed to fill seven separate black bin bags full of rubbish.

The littering came just a week after glass was smashed and left strewn about the park and play equipment.

Taking to social media to urge people to be more considerate, a spokesman for Smithton Community Council said: "Please remind your child if they attend the park to put all rubbish in the bin provided or take it home with them.

"The other week it was glass smashed all over the park and on the equipment.

"Please respect out community parks. if not, they will in time be removed. Sad yes, I know, but that will be the outcome in the end.

"Stay safe."
