Cynon Valley - - FRONT PAGE -

SOUTH Wales Po­lice are look­ing into a video which shows a wo­man danc­ing and ap­par­ently “wreck­ing” the Christ­mas tree in Aber­dare town cen­tre.

The video was posted to an Aber­dare com­mu­nity Face­book page on Satur­day.

It shows a wo­man wrap­ping her­self in Christ­mas lights be­fore run­ning off and pulling them away from the tree. It was posted to Face­book, along with the cap­tion: “This video was sent of some­one dam­ag­ing the Christ­mas Tree in the cen­tre of Aber­dare. What do you think the cul­prit should do? Some vol­un­tary lit­ter pick? Some mar­shal­ing at an event? Some­thing else? Do you think that the clip should be passed on to the coun­cil or po­lice?”

The video has sparked out­rage on­line, with a num­ber of peo­ple com­ment­ing on the post, de­scrib­ing the act as “pa­thetic”, “dis­re­spect­ful” and “wan­ton dam­age”. How­ever, oth­ers de­fend the wo­man and say she was merely act­ing as a “silly girl” and had had too much to drink.

But Rhondda Cynon Taf Coun­cil leader An­drew Mor­gan says he’s fed up of peo­ple dam­ag­ing pub­lic prop­erty.

Cllr Mor­gan wrote on Twit­ter: “So who is the id­iot that thinks wreck­ing the Aber­dare Christ­mas tree is “Let’s name and shame so sw­p­north can send them a £100 FPN!”
