Appeal after vandals target Edinburgh poppy garden

Police in Edinburgh are appealing for witnesses after a remembrance garden was vandalised in the city centre.

The incident happened between midnight on Friday 2 November and 9am on Saturday 3 November at Princes Street Gardens East near the Scott Monument.

The vandalism included minor damage to wooden crosses and a sign within the poppy garden.

Inspector Alan Struthers, of Howdenhall police station, said: “This is a reckless and thoughtless act and we need the public’s help to trace whoever did this.

“We have already conducted local enquiries. The gates were locked so the person or persons who did this would’ve had to climb over the fence.

“We would ask if anyone saw anything suspicious to speak to a police officer or contact us on 101, quoting incident number 1318.”
