ACCESS to playground equipment in a popular Ulverston park has been temporarily restricted.

Children can no longer play on the zip-wire and a swing at the play area situated in Ford Park due to concerns surrounding their safety.

The two pieces of equipment are said to have damage attributed to wear and tear so are no longer safe for use.

The Ford Park team remain hopeful that they will be able to have both pieces of equipment replaced and back up and running for the children to enjoy as soon as it is possible to do so.
