Police investigation continues as more trees vandalised on Swansea seafront
VANDALS have struck again on Swansea seafront, destroying more trees.
Around half a dozen trees in Blackpill were targeted last week, with partly severed trees and trucks forcing Swansea Council to fell them — and now at least two more trees in the same area have been vandalised.
The new damage was discovered on Tuesday morning.
South Wales Police have launched an investigation into the destruction, and are urging anyone with information to come forward.

A spokesman for Swansea Council said damaged trees had to be cut down for safety reasons after some branches were left hanging dangerously.
He said: "The damaged trees will be left flat on site for a few more days before they're taken away. We hope this will help jog people's memories and lead to information about who's responsible.
"The police have also been informed and we'd urge anyone with information to contact them."
The latest incidents come almost exactly a year after trees were targeted along the same stretch of seafront.
Dog walker Janet Joseph is one of the nearby residents left scratching her head at the vandalism.
She said she could not understand why anybody would want to destroy the trees.
