Police are searching for vandals who deliberately burned down a log cabin in a woodland near Galashiels.

The incident happened between 1.00pm on Monday 16 October and 9.00am on Tuesday 17 October, at Wooplaw Community Woodlands on Langshaw Road.

Vandals have caused significant damage to a community facility which will cost over a thousand pounds to repair. We are carrying out enquiries in the area and are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious, or may have noticed the fire as it would have been visible through the wooded area particularly during the hours of darkness."
