Children from a park that was destroyed by fire still managed to find somewhere to practise their dance routine.

The Three Corners adventure Playground, in Spa Fields Park, was all but destroyed by a fire that police say may have been arson.

The flames ravaged the popular play area back in May, leaving the many children that relied on it with nowhere to stay active during the summer months.

But not to be deterred, a group of young jivers from Three Corners used a recent Playday, in Paradise Park, Holloway on, to get in some crucial practice for their Playstation 3 dance routine.

Cllr George Allan, a trustee of Three Corners, said: “I understand the damaged parts of the adventure playground will be rebuilt some time in the autumn.

“The users and the parents are looking forward to having the full range of activities available once again.”
