Booby trap warning repeated for Randwick Woods

WALKERS, runners and cyclists have been warned to look out for traps in Randwick woods after ‘booby traps’ were discovered on some of the pathways.

Police have now released a warning to everyone visiting the area.

A force spokesman said: “We’re asking those using Randwick Woods this bank holiday weekend to please be vigilant following reports of traps being left.

“A member of the public reported finding nails placed in pieces of wood and trip wires along the cycle track, these appear to have since been cleared.

“Officers attended and could not find any traps, however they could reappear.

“This is dangerous and not just to cyclists, but to walkers, children and animals.

“We’re asking anyone how has seen suspicious activity in the woods or witnessed this taking place to please contact the Stroud Neighbourhood Policing Team.”
