ENQUIRIES are underway after two diggers were vandalised in Unst.

Local company Sandison’s said windows were damaged on two diggers in the Clibberswick Quarry at some point between 9pm last night (Monday) and 8am this morning.

A water pump was also knocked over.

The incident has drawn criticism from the community on social media, and Sandison’s manager Adam Doull said an incident of this nature was rare on the island.

“I don’t think we have had any issues with vandalism at any of our locations at Unst,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Officers in Shetland have been made aware of damage to two diggers in the Beach Road area of Unst, which is believed to have taken place between Monday, 7 June, and Tuesday, 8 June. Enquiries are at an early stage.”
