Community saddened by vandals

A community orchard, which was designed to help feed those in need, has been damaged by vandals in Dumfries.

More than 60 volunteers were involved in planting the trees, and the project is thought to have cost around £7,500.

Also targeted in the act of destruction was a nearby poppy field to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

Vandals have damaged a field of poppies in Dumfries that was planted to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first world war.

A community orchard on the same site, which was designed to help feed those in need, has also been damaged.

Organisers have said it could be the last straw for the project.
