Vehicle-activated barriers have been installed at the entrances to two parks in Surrey to increase security and prevent anti-social behaviour.

Surrey Heath Borough Council said the move was to tackle reckless driving, fly-tipping and anti-social activities associated with vehicles late at night.

The barriers have been installed at Frimley Lodge Park and Watchetts Recreation Ground.

A similar barrier was installed at Lightwater Country Park this year.

The council said the barrier at Lightwater Country Park had led to reduced levels of noise nuisance caused by cars being driven at excessive speeds in the evenings.

The two new barriers will allow park access to vehicles from 0730 GMT to dusk, and groups who rent buildings at the parks will also have access at other times.
