Preston Police have issued a warning for gangs of youths to stay away from Acorns Primary School in Moor Park.

Tiles on the roof have been damaged, causing water to seep through, and risks the school being closed while the damage is repaired.

PCSO Bride and PC Clark have released a statement: “Over the last couple of weeks mainly on weekends, youths have been trespassing on the premises of Acorns Primary School, Moor Park. Once inside the premises the youths have been putting themselves at risk by going onto the roof of the school.

“As a result of this, the tiles on the roof have been damaged which is causing water to leak into the structure of the school, putting the pupils inside at risk. If the extent of the damage gets worse, the school will have to consider closing until the damage is repaired.

“We strongly suggest that anyone who considers trespassing on any school premises to think about their own safety and the possible effects it has on the wider community.”
