Action call on damaged park sign
A city councillor has called on the authority to restore a Leicester park to its full glory.
Adam Clarke, who represents Aylestone, is demanding the council either repair or replace the arched entrance sign to Aylestone Hall Gardens.
The sign was removed after it was damaged when a council worker backed his vehicle into it. Repairing it would cost £1,200 while a replacement would be £1,600.
Councillor Clarke said: "If the council caused the damage, it should repair it or replace the sign with a new one.

"If it was some bog-standard sign, perhaps I could understand it. But it isn't, it's a beautiful sign that is part of the character and uniqueness of the park.
"Without that sign, people wouldn't know the park was there and it is an oasis in the middle of Leicester."
Graham Woods, area parks manager for the council, said: "It costs nearly as much to repair the arch as it would to replace it.
"I want to get the views of the public before we spend this sort of money and I wanted to ask the Friends of Aylestone Hall and the park users what they thought would be best."
