Police are looking to trace a group of youths following numerous reports of vandalism at a park in Peebles.

Several members of the public contacted the emergency service after witnessing four males smashing glass bottles against a pavilion in the Tweed Green area of the town as well as onto a nearby roadway.

The incident happened at around 5:50pm on Sunday, May 8th, when the park was busy with local residents and visitors.

Officers are currently pursuing a positive line of inquiry and want to hear from anyone with relevant information.

Inspector Mike Bennett who is based in Galashiels said: “This was a mindless and reckless act, which could have resulted in injury to members of the public including children and animals.

“We are pursuing positive lines of inquiry however we would welcome any further information from the public.”

Those with information are asked to contact police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
