Parents' anger after play area at Hanford Park destroyed in arson attack
Parents have been left devastated after their children's playground was destroyed in a 'senseless' arson attack.
Firefighters tackled the 10ft flames after being called to Hanford Park, off Wilson Road.
The blaze damaged a climbing frame and ropes.
It was the second such incident at a play area in North Staffordshire after a fire was started at a £100,000 play area at Brown Edge playing fields last month.
Mum-of-two Rebecca Mount was upset her children wouldn't be able to play there anymore.
