CCTV is now installed.
The new CCTV is now installed at the Skate park with 3 very high cameras which cover all the area which includes the SK8 park and the new BMX track. Its hoped that the vandals will now have no were to hide and if they cause trouble they will be caught on camera which means the Police will have evidence to take them to court. Lets hope this now makes the site safe for everyone. One unique feature is that the control room can talk to people they see and warn them to stop what there doing.
