Eau dear - park water feature off yet again.

Byline: Sarah Scott Reporter sarah.scott@ncjmedia.co.uk

A PARK'S popular water feature is oagain due to another fault.

Disappointed families celebrated when the water feature in Blyth's Ridley Park was xed last month after being out of action at the start of the summer.

But now the feature has broken once again leaving youngsters without a spot to cool owith friends in the sunny weather.

e water feature was oon Monday and the council said on their website this was due to a faulty part in the chemical dosing system.

e council said a contractor would be on site on Monday to try and repair it and hoped to have it up and running again in 24 hours.

But a statement on the Northumberland County Council website on Tuesday said: "e water feature will remain out of action today whilst we have the fault assessed by an engineer. An update will be provided tomorrow morning as soon as we know the outcome. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience, we are doing all we can to ensure it is back in action as quickly as possible."

It is the latest in a series of faults with the feature, after it broke down on a number of occasions in July and August last year.

Public demand for the feature is high, especially during the summer months and many residents have condemned the council for failing to nd a permanent solution to the problem.

e water jet feature is due to operate daily from 10am to 6pm.
