Thick gloss paint was poured down the slide and over the frame in Aubrey Drive, the second time it had been targeted in a month.

Sudbury Town Council community warden manager Bradley Smith said the unit was due to have been renovated in the next few weeks but would now have to be closed off until work could start.

"It's such a stupid thing to do. Whoever is responsible has just tipped a can all over it, and being gloss paint it's not going to come off easily," he said.

"It could have been used by kids before the renovation but will now have to be closed off until the work can be done, which with the school holidays coming up means they're the ones that are going to suffer."
