Police are appealing for witnesses after a primary school in Hawick was vandalised.

A number of windows at Burnfoot Primary School were smashed at some time between 16 and 25 July.

The damage is expected to cost thousands of pounds to repair.

This is a needless act of destruction that will be of great expense to the school and we are investigating the matter thoroughly to identify whoever was involved.

Anyone who remembers seeing any suspicious activity around the school recently, or who believes they can assist with this ongoing inquiry should contact police immediately.

I would also urge parents to discuss this incident with their children and remind them of the potential dangers and consequences associated with such offences.

– Community Sergeant for Hawick,Tom Quinn
