An experienced archer himself, Mr Simister is warning park users to be careful with their dogs and children.

He said: "Before letting your dog (or kids) run on the field at South Hill Park (by the fishing lake), have a quick check for archers.

"Wind can have a dramatic effect on both range and direction, especially when clout shooting (into the sky).

"I called the police again yesterday as a friend of mine saw him again late afternoon loosing arrows."
