    A spokesman for Sefton Council said: “The playground at Smithy Green, Formby is around 30 years old and while we have tried to sustain it with regular inspection and maintenance, the site has recently seen rapid deterioration.


    “As a result we have decided to close the facility and decommission the old equipment which was done with Cabinet Member approval with ward councillors and Formby Parish Council also notified.

    “While this is disappointing, the nearest alternative playground site to Smithy Green is at Alt Road which is just half a mile away. This site has received recent investment and along with nearby Duke Street Park, which also boasts a substantial playground, provision is still available for families to enjoy.”

    How do you close a field with no fence around it?

    Put a fence round it with loads of signs telling people it's dangerous the cost of which is in excess of replacing the original equipment.

    And is that actually what they are proposing to do? Do you have any evidence to support your statement?
