Unfortunately we have had another incident of criminal damage to the fence along Hoopern Valley which we have reported to the Police. This is the sixth incident in two years.
The person(s) responsible for the damage is putting cyclists and walkers at risk, as the cut wire is left at an angle protruding dangerously onto the pathway until the University Grounds staff have been alerted and made safe.
Our plans to invest in improving the public right of way through the valley have to be delayed again, as we have to divert resources to repairing the fence.
If anyone has any information which may help the Police with their enquiries investigating this damage, we are happy to pass this via the Grounds email.
