Kelso police pursue play park vandals

Police in the Borders have issued an appeal for information after a boat-shaped climbing frame in a Kelso play park was vandalised.

The incident happened on Thursday evening at the town's Shedden Park.

Scottish Borders Council had only just completed work building the frame a couple of days earlier in order to improve facilities in the area.

The mast of the boat-shaped frame was deliberately snapped off in the incident.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact the police.

They are particularly keen to hear from a woman with a child who spoke to a group of youths in the park on Thursday.
