Why do people do things like this, no wonder the council don't bother repairing things, people moan there is nothing to in their area, when they actually put something up to do, you just destroy it.

Very insensitive. Apologies to family members of the innocent victims of the Bradford fire. Caused by a smoking littering idiot that could not go 90minutes without his addiction.
