On or around Saturday 28 December 2013, two wooden sculptures in the Spa Gardens were vandalised in a deliberate act. The Alice in Wonderland themed sculptured was damaged – a caterpillar has had its head removed and a rabbit its nose.
Inspector Ratcliffe of Ripon police has described it as an appalling act that has offended a lot of people. It is also a planned and deliberate act as those responsible went to the park equipped with a saw.
Anyone who can help officers with their enquiries is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101.
