Brad Coleman posted a photo of a melted public bin to the Lockridge Neighbourhood Watch Facebook page on February 16, sparking conjecture about the cause.
Post commentator Tracey Spice said “there’s some real cruddy vandals in Lockridge these days. Surely someone saw something.”
Rachael Caine suggested it could have been caused by a disposed lit cigarette.
Mr Coleman agreed that it could be a possibility but said “there’s been a lot of vandalism at the clubhouse there.”
