Around 18 headstones have been toppled over, and a further seven damaged, at an Aberdeen cemetery.
Police are appealing for witnesses following the damage to the historic gravestones at Allenvale Cemetery, Allenvale Road, Aberdeen.
The incident is understood to have happened sometime between Friday, November 3, and Tuesday, November 7.
Sergeant Richard Dickens said: “This is a mindless and despicable act which has caused several gravestones to be damaged, many of which are of historical value to the city and range from the 1800’s to 1930’s.
“The cost of the damage is estimated to be around a mid four-figure sum of money and many of the stones cannot be repaired.
“We would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious behaviour or has seen anything unusual between the dates mentioned to contact us on 101 quoting incident number 1601 of 21/11 or if you wish to remain anonymous via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
