Balgay Cemetery vandalism

I have slammed those responsible for further vandalism at Balgay Cemetery that occurred overnight Sunday 30th into Monday 31st October and saw another 6 gravestones damaged within the graveyard along with ceramic pots and figurines.

This vandalism was utterly despicable and yesterday, I had a lengthy and useful discussion with our local police inspector about this latest incidence of  vandalism at Balgay Cemetery and I am assured that Tayside Police is putting in a lot of effort to catch those responsible.

However, it is vital that any resident who may have seen anything suspicious in the cemetery and surrounding area makes contact with the police to pass on any information they have – no matter how insignificant they think it may be.      

This sort of terrible vandalism causes great upset to families and it is vital that all steps are taken to stamp it out and apprehend those responsible.
