Vandals damaged a picnic bench in Pocklington beyond repair.

The bench, in the Croft Playpark, on Victoria Road, was so badly damaged that it had to be scrapped.

Town clerk Richard Wood said: “It is most regrettable when such things happen because a replacement will cost several hundred pounds which should have been spent on other areas of the town.”
