Flood wall van­dalised

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Oban’s new flood bar­rier has been left “use­less” af­ter be­ing at­tacked by van­dals.

A sec­tion of the in­ter­lock­ing bar­rier next to the Black Lynn burn was re­moved, leav­ing a gap in the de­fence sys­tem.

A mem­ber of the pub­lic who re­ported the dam­age said the at­tack had left the bar­rier use­less.

An Ar­gyll and Bute coun­cil spokesman said: “That peo­ple would de­lib­er­ately pull up a bar­rier put there for flood pro­tec­tion is shame­ful.”
