Work is currently being undertaken in Moor Park to fix a sink hole.


Preston City Council have teamed up with Fintec Groundworks to carry out repair work in the popular park after a collapsed drain caused the ground to become uneven.

Due to the ongoing works, part of the car park is currently closed off, as well as the section of the park where the sink hole is to protect the public.
