A Knightswood nursery has reportedly been ‘targeted’ by vandals for a second time in less than two weeks in what has been branded as a ‘soul-destroying’ attack.

We previously reported that play equipment at Knightswood Early Years Centre was left covered in shards of glass after ‘despicable’ vandals smashed a number of windows at the facility on Wednesday, July 3.

Three windows at the Willow Room, an indoor play space at the Great Western Road nursery, were shattered with pictures showing traffic cones and a large plank of wood lying near the windows on the floor.

Officers are investigating the incident after being alerted to it by a ‘vigilant’ member of the local community who watched as the antics unfolded.

The latest act of vandalism comes less than two weeks after we reported that cruel vandals had broken into the early years centre’s playground and trashed a wooden hut used by nursery children in a separate incident.

Reacting to the news, Patricia Ferguson, the newly elected MP for Glasgow West, said: “It's very upsetting to see this latest vandalism at Knightswood Early Years Centre.

"The staff have worked hard to provide the children with a safe and interesting space to play in and to see it so badly damaged must be soul destroying for them.”

Councillor Paul Carey, who represents the Drumchapel/Anniesland ward, told the Glasgow Times “this has to stop”.

Councillor Carey said: “I’m absolutely shocked and disgusted that the nursery has been attacked again by mindless morons.

“All they’re doing is hurting their community especially the young people who use the nursery. This has got to stop.

“If anyone knows anything at all about who is targeting the nursery could you please phone the police or myself.”

Councillor Malcolm Mitchell, who represents the Garscadden/Scotstounhill ward, branded the latest incident as “unacceptable”.

Councillor Mitchell said: "This mindless vandalism is completely unacceptable. I know vandalism at this site has been an issue on multiple occasions now.

“It's essential that those responsible are caught and face appropriate sanctions. I know that these incidents will be extremely disheartening for the staff and families that use the early years centre.

“It's important that the local community and other stakeholders offer any support we can."

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is urged to contact police via 101.
