VANDALS have stolen solar lights from a memorial garden set up in memory of three teenagers who died in a crash in East Lothian.

The garden was created by Susan Stewart after her 16-year-old son Josh was killed along with David Armstrong, 15 and 18-year-old Jenna Barber.

The 49-year-old mum said she was devastated when she discovered the lights had been stolen.

She said : “I don’t know how anybody could stoop so low.

“Everyone knows there’s a memorial garden there and there’s a plaque which says what it’s all about.

“It’s disgusting and disrespectful.”

The teenagers were passengers in a car which hit a wall near Tyninghame in East Lothian last November.

Their friend, 16-year-old Robbie Gemmell, who was at the wheel was later convicted of causing death by dangerous driving. He was banned from driving for four years and ordered to do 300 hours community service.
