Six Arrests After 18 Birds Beheaded In Wythenshawe Park

Six teenage boys have been arrested in connection with a "sickening" attack in a Manchester park in which 18 birds were beheaded.

A total of six teenagers have been arrested by Greater Manchester Police on suspicion of theft and burglary.

Vandals caused around £10,000 damage when they smashed 130 windows at a horticultural centre in Wythenshawe Park.

A number of fish also died when fertiliser was tipped into a pond and a frog was speared to death during the attack.

The yobs struck between some time between 4.30pm on Sunday and 10am on Monday.

City officials labelled the vandalism a "sickening act of cruelty".

A spokesman for GMP said: 'Six teenagers, aged between 13 and 18, have been arrested on suspicion of burglary, theft and criminal damage.

Five have been bailed until August 2011 pending further inquiries.

An 18-year-old man remains in police custody for questioning.'
