Callous thieves have stolen more than £1,000 of iPads and computers from an Aberdeen primary school.
Bramble Brae Primary School was broken into at around 6.20pm on Wednesday.
“Selfish” criminals made off with a number of tablets and laptop computers – which were today described as valuable assets for young pupils.
Councillor Ciaran McRae, who represents the Northfield area, condemned the thieves.
He said: “It’s a terrible thing to have happened.
“I’m very disappointed to hear that the school has been targeted and that such vital learning equip-ment has been removed from the premises.”
He added: “If anyone has any information, please contact the police to help them with these inquiries so that we can hopefully get to the bottom of this.”
It is not the first time the school has been the victim of break-ins.
Last year, the primary was broken into and vandalised nine times between June and August.
The damage inflicted included smashed windows, broken bottles and broken walls.
Bramble Brae’s nursery area was also broken into and vandalised twice.
Pc Jordan Cheyne of the Northfield Community Policing Team, who is investigating the incident, said: “I would urge anyone with any information relating to this break-in to get in touch with Police Scotland as a matter of urgency.
“The stolen devices are a valuable asset for the school and the pupils in their education and learning which those resp-onsible have selfishly deprived them of.
