RAMPAGING vandals stole fencing from a blind charity to set on FIRE it is believed.

It is estimated that it could cost the RNIB £1,000 to repair the damage caused when vandals stole a large section of fencing and support posts.

The building in Springfield Road has been vandalised in the past with windows smashed and greenhouses destroyed.

CCTV has been installed in a bid to crack down on the vandals.

Heather Muldoon, operations manager at RNIB, said: “This is very frustrating for us. The people who did this don’t appreciate that this is money taken away from the services we provide.

“Instead of using money on something nice for our garden we will have to pay for the fence to be replaced.

“We have a sensory garden for service users and the fence is there to protect it.”

It’s thought vandals carried out the senseless attack sometime between Friday, November 4, and Monday 6, and that the wooden fence was used for a bonfire.

Anyone with information about the theft of the fence is asked to contact the police on 0141 532 4400.
