    A historic Nelson statue's been damaged in a spate of thefts and vandalism in public parks

    A historic Nelson statue's been damaged in a spate of thefts and vandalism in public parks


    The City Council says over the weekend three macrocarpa benches were stolen from Sunday Hole - the second theft in two months.

    A week earlier, the 125-year-old Priapos Fountain statue in Queens Gardens was kicked until it cracked.

    Sport and Recreation chair Councillor Tim Skinner says it's extremely frustrating for council staff - and the items are paid for with ratepayer money.

    He says anyone with information should get in touch with police.
