It comes after the fountains in Queen Victoria Square had to be turned off on Tuesday for 24 hours after detergent was poured into the jets.

The council said fountains at the Rose Bowl had also been targeted recently.

Councillor Daren Hale said: "The vast majority of people respect these areas, but unfortunately there are a handful that don’t [and that] results in both inconvenience for residents and also a significant cost for the council."

Labour retained control of the city council overnight following Thursday's local elections.

Council boss Steven Brady (pictured) claims Brexit was one of the main reasons the turnout in some Hull wards was as low as 13%.

Mr Brady says: "They really do need to sort the mess out of Brexit and let us settle down and start looking at the serious problems such as social care and children's services and bring some prosperity back to the people."

Mike Ross, a Lib Dem councillor for the Avenue ward, said voters in the city were "fed up with the mess that's being conducted by the two main parties at Westminster".

He added that support for other political parties, including his, was a message to Labour and the Conservatives.

Losing the Avenues by such a close margin was hard to take but we know it's been close in the past. We know it's a hard-fought ward and we'll bounce back and I'm sure we'll win it again in the future."

Low turnout in Hull, says city council leader

Hull City Council Leader Stephen Brady says he's "hoping for good results" but is worried by the "very, very low" turnout.

The North Carr Ward has seen a 13.9% turnout while Orchard Park has had 15.5%.

There is a great deal of anger from the people about the instruction that they gave in the referendum and they believe it's been ignored.
