Intruders wreak havoc at Gympie aquatic centre

GYMPIE'S aquatic centre has been targeted by vandals overnight, who appear have broken in for the sole purpose of wreaking destruction.

Police said the pool was broken into between 8pm last night and 5.30am this morning.

The vandals then stripped a clock off the wall, pulled down light fixtures, threw signs around and tipped rubbish bins over.
