Police have launched an investigation after a nursery in Aberdeen was repeatedly vandalised.
A garden area at Riverbank Primary School’s nursery, in Tillydrone, was targeted between last Friday and Tuesday.
Fences and other items at the Dill Road site, which is used by around 80 pupils, have now been left completely destroyed.
Councillor Ross Grant, who represents the area and has two children that attend the school and used to go to the nursery, slammed the culprits.
He said: “Our children loved the garden when at the nursery.
“A number of individuals have been in touch with me with some information which has been passed to the police for their attention.
“I hope that all effort goes into detecting the culprits so they understand and accept the ramifications of their actions.”
PC Brandon Lees, of the Tillydrone community policing team, said: “This was a mindless act of vandalism to a well-used and well-loved nursery. A lot of time and effort has been put into creating a space that is enjoyed and used daily and it has now been ruined for no apparent reason.
“We are carrying out inquiries to identify those involved and I encourage anyone with information that could assist to get in touch as soon as possible.
“Officers are carrying out regular patrols to prevent any recurrence however I ask local residents to contact the police if you see or hear any further disruption while our inquiries continue.”
Anyone with information should contact 101, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if they wish to remain anonymous.
