THE RED lights that lit up Clickimin Broch at the weekend topromote anti-racism education as well as raise awareness of dyslexia had to be turned off earlier than planned after the electrics of the floodlights was tampered with.

Lerwick Community Council secretary Frances Valente said she hasn’t had the chance to report the act of vandalism to the police yet but would do so on Tuesday.

She added that a campaign to promote the work of the stillbirth and neonatal death charity SANDS, which would have seen the broch being lit up in blue and pink lights later this week, was now in doubt.

It is not the first time that the floodlights at the historic site in Lerwick have been vandalised.
