The Strand: skateboarders cause damage

Has anybody noticed the damage caused to one of the seats in The Strand?

If you stand with your back to the cross and look towards Booze Busters, the seat between the two has a long, blue scratch from a skateboard caused by some youth trying to slide along it.

Maybe it would pay to take up slabs and sell them at a reclaimation depot and put down loads of cobbles to roughen up The Strand and bring an end to the constant clatter of the skateboarders trying to do stunts. Phillip Cole
