I WOULD like through The Crow to warn other families of the disgusting mess that the Newmarket Road open space has beome.

My husband and I took my seven-year-old and five-year-old daughter there on Saturday afternoon.

We took their scooter and skateboard and went to play on the ramps.

What did my son find when we got there? Playing cards - and what was on the cards? Pornography.

My husband and I had to do a scout around the park in case there was more - and yes there was. What do you tell a child about what they have seen?

There was also a lot of broken glass laying in the grass.

At this time of year, when you are wearing flip-flops and sandals, it is a dangerous place to be.

So if you are a family who are going to spend some time there, go before your children and have a good look around.

You may not be too happy what you see.
