Yobs smash play­ground equip­ment at school

Evening Express (City Final) - - News -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing for help af­ter yobs smashed up play­ground equip­ment at a North-east school.

Strath­burn Pri­mary School in In­verurie was tar­geted by van­dals be­tween 1pm and 2.15pm last Satur­day, where a glass door and play­ground items were dam­aged.

School staff re­ported the in­ci­dent to po­lice on Mon­day morn­ing and the dam­age cost the school sev­eral hun­dred pounds to re­pair.

Po­lice Scot­land said five boys were seen in the play­ground around the time of the dam­age was caused and have asked for wit­nesses to get in touch.

Pc Stephen Coutts, who is the in­ves­ti­gat­ing of­fi­cer, said: “This type of anti-so­cial be­hav­iour will not be tol­er­ated. Reck­less be­hav­iour such as this causes un­nec­es­sary dam­age to the school and anx­i­ety within the lo­cal com­mu­nity. We are ur­gently look­ing to trace the in­di­vid­u­als seen nearby to as­sist with the in­quiry.

“I would ask that if any­one has any in­for­ma­tion they call us on 101 quot­ing ref­er­ence 0676 of Septem­ber 11.”

Van­dal­ism: Strath­burn Pri­mary School.
