An appeal has been launched by Angus Council and Police Scotland after several trees were felled in Brechin Public Park.
A statement from Angus Council said: “Three trees have been felled at Brechin Public Park in an inexplicable act of vandalism.
“It appears the trees, which are situated at the War Memorial, were destroyed at some point on Wednesday, December 14. A member of the public saw they had been cut down and later reported it to us after realising it was not the council that had carried out the “work”. A fourth tree has also been downed on the nature trail in Brechin.
“Indications are that all of the trees were felled by someone using a chainsaw.
“We’ve reported these incidents to Police Scotland and they ask for anyone with information to contact them on 101.”
A Police Scotland Spokesperson said: “Police Scotland is appealing for information after trees were cut down at Brechin Public Park. The vandalism is understood to have happened sometime between 3.30pm on Tuesday (December 13) and sometime during Wednesday afternoon (December 14). Anyone who can assist officers with their enquiries into the incident is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101.”
