Remembrance garden vandalised days after opening to public
The garden near the Scott Monument in Edinburgh was damaged overnight.
A Remembrance garden open for just under a week has been vandalised in Edinburgh.
The incident happened between midnight on Friday November 2 and 9am on Saturday November 3 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."
The Edinburgh Garden of Rememberance was opened by the Lord Provost just under a week ago.
Wreaths were laid at the opening ceremony with members of the armed forces including veterans attending the event.
A sea of 8,500 memorials in the garden were created from thousands of Remembrance symbols sent to Legion Scotland from supporters across the country.
Inspector Struthers added: "We would ask if anyone saw anything suspicious to speak to a police officer or contact us on 101, quoting incident number 1318."
