The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter Pic­tish carv­ings within Fife caves were tar­geted by van­dals. Graf­fiti has been spray painted over the his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant sym­bols at We­myss Caves . Ex­pert ad­vice has now been sought in a bid to find a way to clean up the dam­age with­out de­stroy­ing the del­i­cate draw­ings in East We­myss, some of which are thought to date from the fifth and ninth Cen­turies. Peo­ple have been urged not to at­tempt to re­move the paint in case they make mat­ters worse.
