A Norfolk holiday park owner has been fined �6,000 for failing to improve a play area which had been found in a poor condition by inspectors.
Mark Hole was found guilty yesterday of failing to comply with an improvement notice made at Burgh Hall Holiday Park at Burgh Castle, near Great Yarmouth.
The notice was made after Yarmouth Borough Council environ-mental health inspectors found steps to a slide were missing, a wooden rabbit rocker was rotten, a climbing frame was rusty and there were holes in a fibreglass tree house.
Following the inspection on August 2008, an improvement notice was issued ordering Hole to make the play area safe.

Yarmouth magistrates' court had previously heard that a follow-up inspection in April found that only some minor improvements had been made and that play equipment posed a risk to the public.
Yesterday Hole was found guilty by magistrates. He had told the court that he had leased the site to a Paul Southey and so was not responsible for the play area at the time.
