Kirkcudbright cemetery vandalism case continued

Sentence has been deferred on two men who admitted smashing and pushing over dozens of headstones at a cemetery in Dumfries and Galloway.

Alexander McIntosh, 19, of Dumfries and Christopher Frost, 22, of Dalbeattie, had admitted damaging 47 headstones at Kirkcudbright Cemetery in June.

Dumfries Sheriff Court heard they caused an estimated £40,000 worth of damage during a drunken rampage.

The pair were remanded in custody until 2 September for background reports.
