A VOLUNTEER litter picker who reported the recent vandalism at the Lido playpark was disappointed to discover Meethill’s skate park had been hit too.

Vandals had used black spray paint to write obscene messages on a number of ramps.

Upon visiting the park, the Buchanie have decided not to publish pictures of the graffiti due to the language used.

The volunteer reported the graffiti to the police on Tuesday, who then reported it to the council.

On Wednesday morning, a worker from Aberdeenshire Council was present at the park to remove the offensive graffiti.

He said: “It shouldn’t be hard to to come off. It is already fading with people going over it using skateboards and scooters.”
