VANDALS have smashed the window of a car in Selkirk.

The incident happened sometime between 3.30pm on Thursday, January 25 and 7.30am on Friday, January 26, at a public car park at the rear of West Port.

During that time, a grey Ford Focus sustained a smashed rear window and inquiries are ongoing to trace those responsible.

Constable Charlie Doyle said: "This was a needless act of destruction that will either leave the car owner out of pocket, or result in a claim on their insurance.

"Anyone who saw any suspicious activity around the West Port car park on Thursday evening, or Friday morning, is asked to get in touch."

Those with information can contact Selkirk Police Station via 101 and quote incident number 591 of the 26th January.
