The roof of the shelter, in Millennium Park, was damaged at around 8.45am on August 7, and police have today (Tuesday) launched an appeal for information.

North Somerset Sergeant Mark Raby said: “The shelter was built after requests from local youths and money raised by the community.

“We’ve also worked hard with partner agencies to see a reduction in antisocial behaviour in the park.

“We don’t want the damage caused by a few to affect the good behaviour of a large number of youths.”

Anyone with information should contact the Nailsea neighbourhood team on 101.
