The area has now been closed off.

A council spokesman said: "We have some sad news to bring you, even more so during the summer holidays. Vandals have attacked the playground at Martindale over the weekend and left it in this mess. Sadly, we've had to close off the area until further notice for safety reasons, as we're sure you'll understand.

"“Wyre has invested a lot into our parks and open spaces so this extensive vandalism is very disappointing, especially for families and young people as the summer holidays are in full swing. We’ve experienced a number of antisocial behaviour incidents at this park in recent months and would urge anyone that knows who the culprits are to contact the police.”

Lancashire police were approached for comment.
