A north-east councillor has hit out at a “disgraceful” theft which took place at an Aberdeen school.
It comes after damage was caused to Albyn School on Queens Road sometime during the night of March 17 to 18.
According to a Queen’s Cross and Harlaw community council report, some outdoor property was damaged and a pedal bike stolen and subsequently left nearby.
Councillor Martin Greig, who represents the area, said: “Further reports of crime at school premises is worrying.
“The theft at Albyn School is disgraceful.
“It is despicable to target buildings that have been closed to enforce lockdown.
“I would urge nearby residents to be vigilant neighbours and look out for suspicious activity.”
