The new Jubilee Fountain in Windsor is out of action again - thanks to paddlers.
The lavish £107,600 monument at the corner of Barry Avenue and Goswell Road was only opened a fortnight ago.
It was closed for two days last week after a prankster poured washing up liquid into it, turning its clear water soapy.
Now it has closed after enthusiastic summer paddlers caused damage.
It is hoped it will be in operation again by Saturday.
Paddling is not expressly forbidden although a sign warns that people who do 'take to the water' do so at their own risk.
