Arsonists who attacked new play area in Chadwell St Mary condemned

ON MONDAY night, the play equipment which is in the process of being installed at the Heath, Chadwell was destroyed in a fire.

Leader of the Council & Cabinet Member for Public Protection and Anti-social Behaviour, Cllr Rob Gledhill said: “Mindless destruction like this affects the whole community and could mean that much-needed play equipment may not end up being installed and £10,000’s of taxpayers’ money wasted.

Also, with much of Thurrock’s open spaces parched it could have caused a much larger wildfire.  I would urge anyone with any information regarding this incident to contact Essex Police on 101 or FireStoppers on 0800 169 5558 anonymously”

Chadwell Councillor, Adam Carter said: “It deeply saddens me that this has happened, getting the play equipment installed was fought for by local residents with the support of the Council. I have contacted both the police and the Council about this and would encourage anyone with any information to do the same.”
