Fire at Archer Street playground

A playground on Archer Street in Shepparton has been torched this morning.

Vandals attacked the play area near Westmoreland Crescent at some stage before 4am - patrolling officers stumbled upon the playground in flames.

The fire has spread to surrounding wood chips - a plastic roof and a whole section of the playground has been significantly damaged.

Investigators are making enquiries.
