Bags of dog poo were left at a children's park in Norfolk just days after another play area in the county was targeted.
Play equipment at the park off Wymer Drive in Aylsham was smeared with dog poo on Thursday, February 21, and residents took to social media to express their shock.
One woman, who did not wish to be named, said: 'Absolutely disgusted to find that someone has taken it upon themselves to smear a bag of dog poo over the playground off Wymer Drive. I have reported this to the town council, so hopefully it will be cleared up soon.'
Aylsham town clerk Sue Lake said the mess had been cleaned up.
She added: 'We have to react to whatever happens, and, unfortunately, that includes something as disgusting as this.
'This is the first time we've had to do this at this play area, which is owned by the council. Hopefully, it's an isolated incident and it won't happen again. This area is surrounded by houses so someone might have seen the person who did it.
'It was reported to us and within an hour it had been cleaned up. We would always advise people who see something like this to report it to the council.'

It comes just days after a mother spoke of her anger after finding a load of bags of dog mess in another small children's play park.
Thetford mum Kirsty Gordon said the sight of the mess at the playground off Ely Way on the Abbey Estate made her 'blood boil'.
The 31-year-old had been taking her toddler son, who is three, to Ely Park with her cousin's children.
She said: 'The whole park is disgusting - beer cans, spray cans and glass.
'There's always rubbish and glass but I have never seen it that bad.'
A spokesman for Thetford Town Council, which owns the park, said there was a bin at the playground and such incidents should be reported immediately.
Thetford councillor Terry Jermy said: 'It's not the sort of thing you want to see when you're eating your breakfast.'
