Vandals have smashed nearly 20 windows at an Aberdeen health centre.
Kincorth Medical Centre was targeted earlier this week, forcing bosses to apologise to patients for the disruption.
Last night, local councillors condemned the culprits and said it was unacceptable for such a vital community facility to be targeted.
The windows have all been boarded up, and staff have asked locals to keep an eye out for any suspicious behaviour.
In a statement, the staff said: “We apologise for our appearance at Kincorth but we have be subject to antisocial behaviour which has resulted in 18 windows being broken.
“Please stay vigilant and report anything suspicious to the police to help protect our building.”
Local councillor Alex Nicoll said: “I am absolutely shocked and dismayed that anyone would think that’s an acceptable way to behave given the important role the health centre plays in our community.
Disgusted residents also hit out at the vandals as news spread online.
One woman, Sarah Mckeever, said: “Oh my god! That is terrible! Hope all are OK.”
This isn’t the only recent act of vandalism in the area.
In November, members of Kincorth AFC discovered their training grounds had been badly damaged following bonfire night.
The “disappointing” and “mindless” act left burnt grass and debris all over their pitch.
And in 2017, Aberdeen City Council was forced to pay out £15,000 to repair damage caused to Kincorth Academy in August 2017.
Police appealed for public help to catch the culprits at the time, which was one of a series of attacks during the school summer holidays.
Numerous skylights and windows were smashed during the rampage.
