Arson attack at Hatfield playing fields
VANDALS have struck yet again at the same playing fields, with the latest incident involving arson.
Children’s facilities at Roe Hill Hall playing fields, Hatfield, were set on fire and saplings that had recently been planted were damaged.
Fire services were called to put out the blaze at around 1.30am on Saturday, May 30.
This latest act of vandalism follows a Welwyn Hatfield Times report two weeks ago of a cricket pitch being ruined and play equipment being first broken and then stolen at the Briars Lane site.
Carrie Lloyd, town clerk for Hatfield Town Council, which owns the playing fields, said: “It’s annoying and upsetting that people don’t treat the area in the right way.
