Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE - Ross Thom­son

Po­lice have launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter yobs broke into Nether­ton Re­cy­cling Cen­tre and caused sig­nif­i­cant dam­age.

The van­dals smashed a door and win­dow of the build­ing, in Nether­all Road, late on Thurs­day night and scat­tered waste all over the site.

The van­dal­ism caused the cen­tre to be closed on Fri­day morn­ing be­fore it re-opened later in the day.

A coun­cil spokeswoman said: “Dam­age was caused at Nether­ton House­hold Waste Re­cy­cling Cen­tre dur­ing Thurs­day night, with the door and win­dow in the build­ing smashed and items of waste scat­tered over the site.

“The in­ci­dent was re­ported to Po­lice Scot­land and we have pro­vided them with CCTV footage.

“Staff cleared the site af­ter the po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion, and the cen­tre was re­opened within an hour on Fri­day morn­ing.”

A Po­lice Scot­land spokesman con­firmed to the Wishaw Press that the alarm had been raised at 7am on Fri­day morn­ing.

The spokesman added: “Of­fi­cers are cur­rently re­view­ing CCTV in a bid to catch who was re­spon­si­ble.

“Those re­spon­si­ble got over a fence be­fore smash­ing win­dows and kick­ing a door which caused dam­age to the prop­erty. “En­quiries are on­go­ing.” If you have any in­for­ma­tion in re­la­tion to this in­ci­dent or know who may be re­spon­si­ble then con­tact po­lice on 101.
