Vandals destroy Gorebridge turf

VANDALS have destroyed turf beside a Midlothian school.

A grassed area next to Gorebridge Primary School was dug up between Friday, October 28, and Monday, October 31.

Staff at the school discovered the damage – to an area of grass in Barleyknowe Lane – after the weekend break and reported the vandalism to the police.

Councillor Peter Boyes, the cabinet member for education at Midlothian Council, said: “We take vandalism very seriously and we are always looking for ways to reduce incidences of vandalism.”
