Councillor calls for end to Lade Braes vandalism

Posted on
Commenting on the latest bout of vandalism along the Lade Braes, St Andrews Councillor Brian Thomson said “It’s very disappointing to see vandalism in the Lade Braes, which is becoming an increasing problem, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights.  The latest spree involved bins being knocked over – with one ending up in the Kinness Burn – and smashed bottles at Cockshaugh Park and at various points on the footpath.  Other recent vandalism includes graffiti, and garden fences and gates being completely trashed.
With so many children and dog walkers using the area, the broken glass could result in serious injuries, and the behaviour of the vandals is completely irresponsible and unacceptable.  Also, when the Council is are having to deal with cuts resulting from the Scottish Government continuing to cut its budget, its hard-pressed staff could do without having to regularly deal with the clean-up of the mess left by the vandals.
Police Scotland is aware of the issue, and I’d urge residents to assist the Police by reporting any anti-social behaviour as it occurs, or any damage to property as soon as its spotted, by calling 101.”
