Stevenage Borough Council has condemned the "mindless vandalism" of the town centre fountain after it was filled with foam again.

The Danesgate landmark began to overflow with suds on Monday, according to witnesses, with the clean-up operation taking place yesterday (November 8).

SBC confirmed that both they and Herts police will investigate the incident, with Councillor Jackie Hollywell, portfolio holder for community safety and equalities describing it as "mindless vandalism".

"Whilst some people may see this as a harmless prank, this is a mindless act of vandalism that takes time and costs money to clear," she told the Comet.

"We are seeking to identify the perpetrator or perpetrators, and will work with Herts police to investigate the incident."

It's not the first time foam has spilled from the fountain, with bubbles spreading towards town centre shops back in April last year.

In August 2021, washing up liquid was poured into the fountain, causing it to foam well into the next day as police blamed pranksters for the incident.

The incident cost the council £170 to clear, and a criminal damage investigation from Hertfordshire police followed.

Hertfordshire police have been contacted for comment.
