‘Malicious’ vandals smashed a juniors school’s window when they threw a brick through it.

The damage was caused between 8pm on Monday and 9.45am on Tuesday at the Grange Junior Mixed School in Sparhawk.

The offenders entered the school grounds and threw a brick through a glass panel on the roof of the greenhouse. The fencing around the building was also damaged.

PCSO Martin Barringer is investigating the incident and said: “The glass of the greenhouse is reinforced safety glass and so it probably would have taken a couple of hits to break it, meaning the person, or people, responsible was determined to cause malicious damage to school property.

“The damage caused is likely to have caused a loud noise, which someone in the area may remember hearing, if you do remember this please contact me. I would also like to hear from anyone who remembers seeing anyone or anything unusual or suspicious between the stated times.”
