A Church organ has been left with thousands of pounds worth of damage after being vandalised.

Police in East Lothian are investigating the incident of vandalism at Prestonkirk Church in East Linton.

The damage is estimated to be around £7000.

Police are keen to trace those responsible and are asking for anyone who was in the area at the time or who noticed anything suspicious at the beginning of June to contact Police Scotland.
