Cordon off Worthing's sandpit at night

As a Worthing taxi driver that sits on the rank in Worthing we see what goes on in the urban sandpit after hours.

I witnessed the lady sit on the giant deckchair and go straight through it ripping the material on this chair.

This has resulted in the chair being taken away and won’t be back this summer due to imminent repairs needed.

While I think the sandpit and chair gives lots of pleasure to children and holiday makers, this sand pit should have a temporary metal fence put round it at night to stop drunks frequenting it.

It’s not for drunk adults or teenagers, it’s for children. Should it not be cordoned off to keep it nice and clean?

Many of my customers have said exactly the same to me.
