A St Ives resident has expressed his concern after fencing has been removed surrounding a deep pond.
Carl Denny who lives next to Berman Park in St Ives is worried for children’s safety after spotting huge holes in the fencing.
Carl said: “Me and other residents who live near to Berman Park are aware that wooden planks are being removed from the fencing that surrounds the pond.
“These planks are then being taken into the woods to start bonfires, which is a concern to us residents who are living next to the park.
“If those fires catch and goes down that thicket, it would awful consequences.
