A KNUTSFORD father said he was ‘sickened’ after discovering human excrement on top of a slide in the Moor’s new play area.

The resident, who did not wish to be named, made the foul discovery when playing with his two children, aged two and seven, in the park on Sunday morning.

His toddler went to climb the ladder of the slide but thankfully the faeces was spotted in time.

The father warned other parents in the park to stay away from the soiled play equipment.

He had a message for the culprit. “In what sort of a warped mind do you think exposing young children to that filth is either funny or acceptable? It’s not only disgusting but criminal damage,” he said.

“This is the second occasion I am aware of and action should be taken.

“I am proud to be a Knutsford resident so this sickens me.”
