Teen vandals destroy gazebos and trash covid testing sites on Sydney’s Covid-hit Northern Beaches

Teenage vandals have destroyed a gazebo and trashed a Covid-19 testing site on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

The vandals targeted the Warriewood pop-up clinic on three separate occasions, before doing burnouts in the nearby McDonald’s car park.

The vandals knocked over gazebos, leaving already strained health care workers to clean up the damage.

Site manager Paul ‘Dooley’ Ellis said the delinquents left behind drugs after cutting through ropes and sandbags and smashing the clubhouse’s windows on Sunday and Monday. 

‘It’s got to the stage where I get down here an hour and a half before I should, and then call up my wife and say “come on down, we need you sweeping all the glass off the road again”,’ Mr Ellis told 2GB’s Mark Levy on Monday.

‘It’s just atrocious … it’s absolutely out of control down here.’

Mr Ellis asked locals to contact police if they know who is responsible for the mess. 

‘These workers are out there rain, hail or shine and should not have to … find the testing site completely destroyed in this disgraceful act of vandalism,’ he said.

Pittwater MP Robert Stokes said the incidents are being investigated.

A NSW Police spokesman said in a statement that officers are ‘conducting inquiries’.
