Vandals strike at garden

VOLUNTEERS on a Midlothian community garden have been stunned by a fire which destroyed their site.

Vandals attacked a small patch of land used by the Gorebridge Community Gardening Project, burning down two sheds and wiping out harvested crops, plants and seeds.

A petrol lawnmower, two strimmers, tools and equipment were taken from the sheds before they were torched and the blaze accounted for the project’s new crop of onions.
