The incidents occurred overnight between Sunday, November 13 and Monday, November 14, and have taken place across North Edinburgh, with incidents reported in Granton, Boswall, Trinity and Hawthornevale.

The cars that have been targeted all appear to have had their windows either smashed or attempted to be smashed.

Around twenty-five incidents have been reported to be police, however there may be other vehicles damaged.

Due to number of incidents and the scale of the damage, offices are treating the incidents as linked and are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

Inspector Shane McKenna of Drylaw Police Station said: “This is an appalling number of vandalisms and the sheer scale of the damage caused is completely unacceptable.

“Not only has a lot of damage and inconvenience been caused to large number of people, it has also caused a number of police resources in the North of Edinburgh to be diverted in order to investigate.

“We are eager to trace those responsible as soon as possible. We would ask that anyone who was in the North Edinburgh area on the evening of Sunday, November 13, and saw this damage take place, to get in touch with us at their earliest convenience.”

Those with information can contact Police Scotland on 101 or anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
