A spokeswoman for Arun District Council said: "We have taken the decision to close the whole play area until we can make the equipment safe, hopefully in the next few days."

The play park has been the target of vandals, who in 2022 set fire to the ship and surrounding equipment.

This was less than a year after a complete upgrade of the park.
