Social media catches out pool vandals


A group of people who vandalised Nayland Pools on Saturday night have been caught out by social media.

Nayland Pools manager Dave McKenzie says the group jumped the fence, went for a swim and wrecked the place. “They tipped rubbish bins over, threw rubbish in the pool, toilet papered the changing rooms and they tried to light the rubbish bins on fire in the changing rooms.”

Dave placed a post of the damage on their Facebook page which attracted an anonymous message.

“The message named people and said they were bragging on their social media and posting pictures.”

Police are investigating the tip.
