POLICE in Shetland are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a number of pots were smashed and flowerbeds damaged at Sound Primary School, in Lerwick, sometime last weekend.
Constable Rachel Branney said the vandalism happened sometime between the afternoon of Friday 5 May and the following Monday.
"This incident has obviously caused disappointment to those who attend the school, in particular the children and staff who tend to the plants," she said.
Head teacher Ann-Marie Angus said: "Our pupils, staff and parents work hard to improve the school environment.
"Our pupils enjoy outdoor learning and take pride in their environment. It is disappointing that such a mindless act of vandalism has taken place."
Constable Branney added: "Police are currently appealing for any witnesses who may be able to provide information as to how this damaged occurred to contact police on 101."
