Constable Simon Rose, Dunfermline Police Station, said: “This type of vandalism is not only costly to repair but is also dangerous, with broken glass being left in an area popular with visitors.

“The park is for all to enjoy and acts of criminality or anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated. Those responsible will be traced and dealt with accordingly.

“I’m appealing for anyone who has information, or has seen anyone acting suspiciously in the park, to come forward and report it. I’m particularly keen to speak to anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity around the greenhouses.”
