A COU­PLE have spo­ken of their shock at find­ing a blood­ied kitchen knife on the grass near a Llanelli chil­dren’s park as they sat down on a bench dur­ing an evening walk.

Stu Smith had vis­ited his part­ner Keira Jenk­ins at her home in Peny­fan when the pair de­cided to go on a walk along Peny­fan Quarry, which they had done rou­tinely for the past two years. They de­cided to take a rest and sit down on a park bench, a short dis­tance away from a chil­dren’s play park.

And they were hor­ri­fied to dis­cover what was rest­ing on the ground in the grass be­neath them.

“There was a knife on the floor,” Mr Smith said.

“My part­ner is preg­nant and she nearly stood on it. I was quite shocked, there was blood on the knife and it’s ab­so­lutely dis­gust­ing how you can find some­thing like this so near a chil­dren’s park.”

The pair re­ported the May 6 find to the po­lice, and one of Miss Jenk­ins’s fam­ily mem­bers placed the knife in a plas­tic bag ready for the po­lice to col­lect, in an at­tempt to avoid it com­ing into contact with anyone.

Mr Smith added that he had a young son and did not feel com­fort­able tak­ing him there to play any­more

“My boy can’t go there now,” he said. “There’s a lot of el­derly peo­ple who go there with their dogs as well and it’s not nice for them.”

Dyfed-Powys Po­lice have been asked to com­ment, but had not replied at the time of going to press.
