The gates to Kimberley Park in Falmouth are being closed a little earlier than usual following a small fire which was set in the treehouse – the second incident of its kind in recent weeks.

Janey Davis, of the Kimberley Park Association which has overseen the regeneration of the park, said: “We are so lucky with the care and respect most everyone has shown our lovely park, and it’s a shame that this has happened, but let's not dwell.

“We'll just carry on and hope whoever did this gets that it was a bad idea, and decides to find a more positive way to spend their time.”
