Fifty Elgin Cemetery headstones toppled over by vandals

Vandals who toppled about 50 headstones at Elgin Cemetery have been branded "mindless" by the local authority.

Moray Council said the vandalism happened on Tuesday evening, and efforts were being made to contact lair holders.

A spokesman said: "This is mindless vandalism by people who clearly have no respect for the sanctity of a burial ground."

Grampian Police said they were investigating the incident.
