A NEW bridge which was targeted by vandals has been cleared up - but a councillor has warned it will be locked in a ‘never-ending war’ thanks to yobs’ behaviour.

Coun Will Fielding, who represents the Dodworth ward, spoke out about the state of the £2m bridge near Penny Pie Park.

Broken glass was strewn across the bridge’s deck and graffiti was daubed on the structure.

“They cleaned the glass up so I’m very grateful for that - I’m just a bit disappointed it took so long.

“I’ve had lots of complaints from residents about it, quite frankly.

“It’s a never-ending war but at least it’s painted over.”
