PRESSURE from the Wisbech Standard led to a pledge that the barriers around a children's play area will be down by Monday.
Fenland Council says it has ordered the barriers to be taken down even though final details of an agreement with house builder Reason Homes are still awaited.
The council made the pledge on Wednesday and confirmed that they would be taking full responsibility for the area.
