In November last year Jubilee Park in Union Road closed due to ground subsidence.

Cracks and sunken ground could be seen near the children's play area in the park.

Trinity Estates manages the park and the Reflections block of flats that surrounds it. The housing company is working with the developer of the site, Taylor Wimpey, to manage the ground subsidence.

Chris Tompkins, operation manager at Trinity Estates, told the Recorder: 'The Reflections operators addressed this straight away.
