Men have been seen in Hampden Park pond killing ducks with bricks.

Posts online say it happens regularly.

There are now calls for regular warden patrols:

“If anyone else lives in Eastbourne/Hampden Park Area, could they keep an eye on the Hampden Park pond.

Please do not confront the perpetrators, just evidence gather and report to the Police. It could be quite distressing to witness, so be aware!”

That’s one online post over the weekend.

The men are believed to be middle aged and Eastern European.

Police are aware.
