Helen Winter says…
Very dangerous! The peg has been destroyed.
Secretary of Friends Of Queen Elizabeth Park, Elizabeth Bowskill, said: “Remedial action has been taken by putting up a barrier to prevent access to the Peg.
“What has happened is that children and dogs clambering on the earth, combined with the dry weather and the turf not having bound to the soil underneath has left the structure vulnerable to erosion.
“Plans are being made to improve the structure and it is hoped that the repair work can take place fairly soon so that it can be reopened.”
