Baby’s room ‘showered in broken glass’

A BABY miraculously escaped injury when a large stone was thrown through her bedroom window in Galashiels in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The seven-month-old girl was asleep in her cot when the incident occurred at the rear of a house in Woodside Drive, in the Windyknowe area of the town, at around 1.30am.

A police spokesman described how the child’s room had been showered in broken glass as a result of what he called “an unprovoked act of vandalism”.

“Fortunately, the baby was uninjured in her cot, but this is clearly a very serious matter and we would welcome any information from the public leading to the culprit being apprehended,” added the spokesman.
