Tillicoultry ski slope vandalised

Police have appealed for help after fencing and padded mats at Firpark Ski Centre were vandalised.

It is thought vandals targeted the artificial ski slope in Tillicoultry, Clackmannanshire, last week between Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.

Central Scotland Police want anyone who saw any suspicious activity in the area to get in touch.

A spokesman for Clackmannanshire council, which runs the centre, said vandalism was risking skiers' safety.

He added: "The fence had only just been replaced after the fire, and every time something like this happens it comes at great cost to the ski centre."
