Police Scotland has appealed for witnesses after a Fraserburgh primary school was broken into and vandalised on two occasions.

On both occasions, the art building at St Andrews Primary School, Charlotte Street, was the target with bottles of paint being stolen.

The paint was then spread over the playground and walls of the school. The damaged caused is estimated at a low three-figure sum of money.

The incidents occurred during the early evenings of Thursday, July 10, and Sunday, July 13.

During the incidents those responsible threw the bottles about the playground and it is highly likely they will have sprayed themselves with paint.

PC Mike Taylor, said: “This crime is completely unacceptable. Those responsible have given no thought to the distress and upset their actions would have on those who use the school in the community, the school staff and those tasked with rectifying the damage caused. Any assistance, from the public, in identifying those responsible will be greatly appreciated.”

Any person with information relating to these crimes they should contact Police Scotland at Fraserburgh by calling at the police office, phoning the local service centre on 101 or you by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
