Pictures shared online by concerned residents showed graffiti of a graphic nature had been scrawled at a children’s play area in the Sixmilewater Park sometime over the weekend.

The facility is operated by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council.

In a statement issued to the Times, a spokesperson for the local authority said: “The council was made aware of vandalism involving inappropriate chalk markings in the Sixmilewater Park in Ballyclare which has now been removed.

“If a member of the public witnesses anti-social behaviour or criminal damage, they should report this directly to the PSNI by calling 101.”
