HAVE you no shame?

That’s the message to heartless thieves who raided a nursery’s recycling bin, taking clothes meant for children in Africa.

The recycling bin at the Tender Loving Childcare (TLC) nursery in Hillhead, Kirkintilloch, has been looted a number of times.

The latest incident was captured by staff on CCTV. The footage has now been passed on to the police.

A nursery spokesperson said: “There were three of them. One jumped in the bin and passed out the clothes, which were then stashed in a van.

“These people should be ashamed of themselves.”

TLC pre-school manager Michelle Borland is pictured with some of the youngsters who attend the nursery.
