After lockdown rules meant his daughter couldn’t go to the skate park, this father took matters into his own hands.

Barber and carpet fitter Joseph Moss, 27, built a ramp for his three-year-old Ophelia to practice on in their garden in Orpington, Greater London.

The skate ramp was created from old fence panels and leftover materials Joseph had lying around.

Joseph said: “Fifi got into skateboarding because she found my old collection of skateboards.

“I let her have a play on one and she took to it like a duck to water.

“Covid 19 soon settled in and the lockdown was in full swing but Fifi kept playing on the skateboard and asking to go to the skatepark.

“I explained that we couldn’t and she was so sad, so I collected some old fence panels and left over materials from jobs I have done, and had a go at building her own skatepark.”
