A FOUNTAIN in Bolton town centre turned soapy after pranksters appeared to add washing up liquid to the water.
The fountain outside Bolton Town Hall in Victoria Square was filled with bubbles after the prank this afternoon.
It is not known who the culprits are.
I know it is a bit of harmless fun and I've no problem the pranksters getting away with it but surely with all the CCTV cameras about these days isn't it a bit worrying that the Town Hall, the grandest and largest show piece building, smack in the centre of Bolton can be 'pranked' in broad daylight and no one is able to find out who did it!?!
I can understand them saying 'some youths were spoken too', or a drunken bloke was led away for an hour or so to sleep it off' or some such sort of 'wrist smacking' to whoever did it - but to say they don't know who did it, merely means to me that some others will soon be filling up the fountains with more 'fairly liquid' or more likely Morrison's low-price washing up liquid, in days to come.
I hope so anyway!
