Graves desecrated in West Lothian

Several gravestones were damaged by vandals on Hallowe'en night at Manse Road Cemetery in Whitburn.

Inspector Michaela Kerr of Lothian and Borders Police said: "This is a despicable crime and one which causes great distress to families who have already suffered the loss of a loved one. I am sure the local community will be keen to support the police in their efforts to identify the culprits and bring them to justice."

Anyone with any information on the vandals responsible should contact Lothian and Borders Police on 01501 740222, or Crimestoppers for complete anonymity on 0800 555 111.
