Van­dals tar­get school play area

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS -

Mean-spir­ited van­dals have caused dam­age amount­ing to hun­dreds of pounds at an Aberdeen­shire pri­mary school.

Young­sters at Strath­burn Pri­mary School in In­verurie were dis­mayed when they ar­rived at the build­ing to dis­cover that pieces of play­ground equip­ment had been wrecked.

Po­lice of­fi­cers yes­ter­day is­sued an ap­peal for the pub­lic’s help in track­ing down those re­spon­si­ble for the cal­lous act.

They reckon the van­dals struck at the Strath­burn Gar­dens site be­tween 1pm and 2.15pm last Saturday, Septem­ber 9.

Five male youths were seen within the school grounds at around that time, and in­ves­ti­ga­tors are ea­ger to iden­tify them. Con­sta­ble Stephen Coutts said: “This type of an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour will not be tol­er­ated.”
