Evidence for metal detecting

Reported via desktop in the Vandalism category anonymously at 22:16, Wednesday 5 May 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2709020.

There are a number of disturbances in the area identified which look very much like unfilled holes from recent metal detecting activity. As a responsible detectorist myself, I wanted to report this issue as a matter of urgency as this type of behaviour does nothing but bring my hobby into disrepute. Whilst I could be wrong, it may be worthwhile increasing vigilance for similar activities being undertaken elsewhere in the park, particularly at night or in the early morning.
