Broken half pipe sold privately

THE broken half pipe at Henley skate park half pipe has been sold.

Tom Clark, from, Sonning Common, paid £500 for the aging piece of equipment which the town council wanted removed from its land at Makins Road recreation ground because it was potentially unsafe.

Mr Clark, 25, dismantled the half pipe on Wednesday and took it to use in his garden.

He said: “I thought it was an absolute waste for it to be binned. If you went out to buy this new today it would cost £12,500.

“I thought for a few hundred quid, why not have a crack at refurbishing it and have it for myself and my mates to mess about on? I used to skate but I haven’t done for a couple of years.”
