Authorities have warned parents to always check playgrounds before letting their child play in them at public areas. Recently, the police found razor blades taped onto the sides of a children’s slide in Lancashire.


Reportedly, thugs orchestrated the dangerous prank. If the sharp objects weren’t discovered, it could have easily injured any child playing on the slide.

Alarmed, the police officers quickly took to Facebook and informed parents that the blades were found at the Winifred Lane Play area. They urged the people to always check playground first and to remain vigilant.

The authorities also shared a video on the Facebook post showing the blades found.

The clip has been viewed thousands of times, and many Facebook users expressed their outrage over the “vile,” “sick,” and “evil” deed.


In the post, the police department wrote, “Parents, please be aware that razor blades/knife blades have been attached to the side of the children’s slide at the Winifred Lane Play area in Aughton, West Lancs, this morning.”

They advised parents and everyone else to be precautious and to always check any play equipment first before letting children use it.

The police department also asked help from the public to pinpoint the suspect or to give any information that could help solve the case.

“Whoever did this could have caused serious injury to a child – please be assured we are fully investigating this matter,” stated the Facebook post.


This wouldn’t be the first time people posed a threat to children. This previous Halloween, police warned residents after they received reports that sewing needles and nails were found inside Twizzlers candies that were given to children both in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

One of the grandparents of the children who received the tainted candy spoke up and expressed his outrage. At the time, he said he was “still in shock.”
