The mother said that when she confronted them telling them to stop all she received was shrugs and bad language.

She said on Facebook: "Just watched these kids completely destroy the fencing and play area on Maine street - it is fenced off for safety reasons at the moment but they have pulled all the safety fencing down.

"When I told them to stop all I got was shrugs and bad language. Please tell your kids to respect where they live.

"My three-year-old daughter was with me and witnessed this - not happy."
