MINDLESS vandals carried out a pre-Christmas attack on a new climbing frame at Shedden Park in Kelso last Thursday night, only four days after workers completed the boat-shaped structure. The 20cm thick mast has been snapped off.
A police spokesman said: “The climbing frame was created to improve the park and provide better playing facilities for local children and was already being enjoyed by many families.
“We want to hear from anyone with information – particularly a lady with a child who had cause to speak with youths in the park.”
Constable Alex Warmington can be contacted at the Kelso station, 01573 223434.
