The gates to a park in Kilburn were left hanging from a single hinge – but nobody knows how it happened.

A picture posted by @LifeInKilburn on X, formerly Twitter, on Thursday morning (September 28) showed the entrance gate to Kilburn Grange Park in Messina Avenue “completely destroyed”.

Red tape could be seen across the gap, with part of the gate appearing to rest against some undamaged railings.

Social media users reacted in shock to the picture, with one account reposting the image and commenting: “Oh no! How awful”.

Camden Council told Ham and High that the cause of the destruction has not been determined, but that the area has since been made safe.

A date for when the gate will be fully repaired is yet to be disclosed.
