Tile thefts at Brown Building in Gorebridge

Two children aged under 10 have been charged in connection with vandalism to the roof of the Brown Building in Gorebridge.

Over the weekend of September 12/13 tiles were removed from a section of the roof above the dining room and smashed to the ground. Gorebridge Community Development Trust, which is responsible for the running of the community hub building, estimate the damage to have cost over £1,000.

It has also caused severe disruption to community groups that use the building. A report has been sent to the Children’s Reporter.
