Two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of arson after play equipment was ‘damaged beyond repair’ at Arnot Hill Park

Nottinghamshire Police say the two 17-year-olds are under arrest following the incident that is believed to have happened on Monday evening (May 13).

It was reported that the main tower of the slide had been damaged beyond repair.

The main tower was the only area of the play park which sustained heavy damage.

£124,000 was invested in the play park as part of its refurbishment in June 2018, following a successful bid for funding from the WREN community action fund by Gedling Borough Council and the Friends of Arnot Hill Park group.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police today said: “Officers have worked with Gedling Borough Council this week and reviewed CCTV footage of the incident.”
