DAMAGE caused to a junior football oval in Clarkson is estimated to be about $7000, according to the City of Wanneroo.

Police are investigating the June 28 incident at Anthony Waring Reserve, which the Times understands involved someone tearing through the turf in a white Toyota Hilux ute, which ended up on its roof.

The City of Wanneroo fenced off the worst affected areas last Friday and assets director Harminder Singh described it as an “irresponsible and senseless act”.

“A bollard was destroyed and removed for a vehicle to gain access on to Anthony Waring Reserve, which caused an estimated $7000 of damage to turf and irrigation,” he said.

“All repair works were completed on Friday with the exception of re-turfing which is scheduled to be completed on throughout this week.

“The City will liaise with clubs using the space to ensure adequate areas within the park are available for scheduled training.”

Anyone who witnessed this incident or similar behaviour can call WA Police on 131 444 and notify the City on 9405 5000.
