Mini digger vandalised

SOMETIME between 6pm on Thursday, September 6 and 8am the following day, someone stole a warning beacon and smashed a 2ftx2ft window on a Volvo mini-digger at a field a quarter of a mile north of Swinton Mill crossroads.

The digger, owned by Berwick firm Nixon Plant Hire, was hired out to carry out drainage work on fields next to the unclassified road between Duns and Coldstream.

Witnesses to any suspicious activity are requested to contact their nearest police station.
