More needs to be done to stop continuing vandalism at a play park in Donaghmore.
That's according to locals who are fed up with antisocial behavior at the play area at Ivybank Park.
Callers to the Courier complained that the park was constantly being damaged and was being used for antisocial behavior.
Locals said complaints had been made to Dungannon Borough Council and also to the police, but to no avail, with incidents still continuing.

A car drove the wrong way down a one way street in Ballybricken and struck four cars resulting in two women being cut free from one of the cars. The incident happened just before lunch time when the blue Daewoo, which also contained a female passenger, struck a car containing four people head-on, as well as three parked cars.
In a separate incident, an elderly person was struck by a car at a nearby pedestrian crossing, within minutes of the crash occurring.

Judge Seamus Hughes had hit back at calls on him to resign last week, saying he made the exact same comments about Travelers last year and was actually praised by Pavee Point on that occasion.
At the court sitting in Athlone last Wednesday, the judge briefly addressed the controversy in which the Traveler lobby group had called for his resignation over remarks he made during a case the previous week involving Martin Stokes (21) of 5 Corkhill, Kinnegad, who admitted threatening to set fire to the home of a former neighbour of his.
During that case two weeks ago, the judge said he suspected the defendant came from a certain ethnic background that would give him even more form given the type of behaviour in which some of them engage.

Gardaí (police) and two units of Enniscorthy Fire Brigade rushed to Ballynastraw, Glenbrien on Saturday evening (September 8) after receiving a call about a fire breaking out in a cottage in the area.
The fire was called in by a local farmer and the emergency services attended the scene shortly after 5:30 p.m. The cottage was in an isolated area, down a laneway and could not be seen from the road.
The house, which had a thatched roof, was uninhabited and the fire took a number of hours to get under control but was eventually extinguished with the main damage affecting the thatched roof of the house. The building structure was left relatively unscathed.
