Leighton-Linslade’s £1.5million community building has been targeted by graffitists ahead of its opening in the spring.

Reacting to the news that the Astral Park Pavilion was vandalised last week, town clerk Mark Saccoccio, said: “It is really disappointing. It is money that we did not want to be spending just before the facility opens.

“But what has also come out of this is that on social media sites there have been heartening messages from local residents who are feeling as disappointed as we are. It just demonstrates that Astral Park will be an important part of the town to serve the local community.

“We have CCTV being installed very soon so that will help as a preventative measure.”
