A spokesperson for the town council said: "Unfortunately we have received a report from Northumbria Police that there has been bleach poured over the children's play equipment at South Beach. "We are utterly appalled at this mindless act of vandalism and the partnership team has been deployed immediately to fully clean the play area equipment.
