Youth reprimanded

A YOUTH has been reprimanded by police for causing criminal damage at a Havercroft sports centre.

The Express reported last week how thousands of pounds were being wasted and children were being deprived because of vandals attacking equipment at the Havercroft and Ryhill Sports and Youth Centre, off Mulberry Avenue.

Insp Helen Brear, of the Wakefield rural neighbourhood police team, said: “Investigations revealed who had caused one of the incidents of criminal damage. The juvenile admitted the offence, which took place inside the centre, and he received a reprimand from police.”
