Vandals who caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to an Edinburgh school are being sought by the police.

Juniper Green Primary School, on Baberton Mains Wynd, had new worktops and sinks smashed during the £10,000 wrecking spree.

The vandals broke in to the school, which is currently being renovated, sometime between Thursday night and 0800 GMT on Friday.

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman appealed for witnesses.

He added: "This is a case of wanton destruction, which will cost thousands of pounds to repair.

"We are appealing for anyone who may have seen or heard something suspicious to contact police."
