TEENAGERS have been testing their new skateboard park under railway arches in London’s East End with their ollies’ and kickflips’ on the jumps and ramps.

The facility with all its bits and bobs for the more adventurous to show off their skills has been laid out at Mile End Park by the arches of the Fenchurch-Southend main-line.

But Town Hall planners are so pleased with it so far they now want to extend it after the youngsters gave them tips on what they want. More designs are being drawn up with the teenagers’ views in mind for the skate park off Burdett Road, which opened last week.
