Serious graffiti attack at Kingsgate Park - can you help police?

Last night (Thursday/ Friday) a considerable amount of graffiti - some of it obscene - was painted onto the play equipment in Kingsgate Park.

A lot of cream emulsion was painted (using brushes/ rollers) onto some of the wooden items, and black paint was used to write and draw on the end walls of the football/ basketball court. Blue gloss was poured onto the basketball  back-boards, and dripped onto the tarmac floor.

It would appear the culprits were well organised and no tins were found in the park.

A big thank you is due to Yate Town Council's Estates Team who have spent today working hard cleaning off the paint. Most has been removed with just a small amount of inaccessible material remaining.

Did you see anything suspicious in or near Kingsgate Park last night or early this morning? If you can help, please contact the police and quote crime reference number 53981/14.
