About 115 gravestones have been wrecked by cemetery vandals, police in Scotland said yesterday.

The stones, most of which were old, were overturned in Inveresk Cemetery, Musselburgh, Lothian, at the weekend.

"This is a despicable act of vandalism," a police spokesman said. "Not only is this wanton damage, but particularly dangerous for the culprits. They could be seriously injured if a headstone fell on them."

Police are appealing for witnesses.
