Grimsby skate park reopens after ‘shooting’

A local skate park has reopened after it was forced to close last month following an altercation at a youth club on Trinity Road in Cleethorpes.

The incident happened at Trinity Skate Park on Tuesday 22nd March.

The organisation announced the closure of the skate park via social media but declined to explain the circumstances until a police investigation had been concluded.

Now, they have confirmed that the closure was the result of an incident where two young people were shot with a BB gun.

Fortunately, nobody was seriously harmed during the incident.

In a statement issued via Facebook General Manager Andy Cox wrote: “Due to an incident where 2 young people were shot with a BB gun the skatepark has been closed since.

“The two young people are okay but did suffer bruising. Whilst it seems the young people have escaped with no long term injuries, we have taken this incident very seriously.

“UK law states that BB guns must not be sold to under 18’s, however anybody under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.”

Mr Cox went on to explain that extensive new measures have been introduced to avoid similar incidents occurring in the future.
