Reported in Today's Herald.

"Two charged with vandalising graves

Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with vandalism at an Ebinburgh cemetery. More than 20 headstones were damaged within Mount Vernon Cemetery on Wednesday September 1. Lothian and Borders Police said two men aged 25 and 21 were scheduled to appear in court at a later date"


It will be interesting to hear what their punishment will be.

Hopefully it will be hard labour...putting up gravestones.

That is happening at the nearby Liberton Cemetery so hopefully these buffoons will get some of this type of community service.

They won't be so smart about pushing them over if they then have to lift them back up again.

Cheers
