Vandals spray paint offensive words on Coldstream church

POLICE are hunting vandals who spray painted names and offensive words on a church.

The names of a male and a female and other words were painted in gold on St Mary’s and All Souls Episcopal Church in Lennel Road, Coldstream.

The same names and other offensive terms were sprayed gold on the Summer House in Coldstream’s Nun’s Walk.

Rev Dr Christopher Knights said the graffiti was discovered on Sunday, adding: “The words are not anti-Christian, just mindless vandalism.”

A Lothian and Borders Police spokesman said the vandalism may have been carried out between August 12-26.

Anyone with information should contact Coldstream Police Station on 01890 882402 or report to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
