The sandpit was provided by Advancing Aberystwyth, the company which decides how to spend money raised by a levy on business rates of companies within Aberystwyth’s Business Improvement District, and has been in place for around two months.

There is another month remaining of the licence the company was granted by Ceredigion County Council.

A spokesperson said: “A giant-sized deckchair on Aberystwyth Promenade has been damaged. The material of the seating area has been cut.

“Police are investigating the incident, which happened between 5pm on 3 August and 8pm on 4 August.

“Anyone with information that can help officers with their investigation is asked to report it by calling 101.”
