SLOGANS and abusive language have been spray painted on to Amesbury skatepark.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the graffiti was found on the skatepark, which is on the Kingsgate estate, between May 17 and 20.

PCSO Mark Douse, from the Wiltshire South CPT, said: "Criminal damage like this is unnecessary, unsightly and irresponsible.

"The damage caused here isn't a huge amount but it is the social impact that should be considered - some of the language used isn't family friendly.

"The complete disregard shown for a community facility, used by children and their parents, is really quite saddening and we'd really like to find out who is responsible."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and quote crime reference 54190048986.
