MORE damage has been caused at Kilwinning's ancient abbey grounds after another bin was burnt on the historic site.

Police are appealing for information after the wheelie bin was set alight at the listed Kilwinning Abbey building last month - causing damage to the ruins.

Further damage with graffiti and removing retaining wall stones was also reported back on June 17.

We previously reported repeat complaints of incidents of anti-social behaviour at Kilwinning Abbey - including youngsters targetting a litter-picking volunteer while previously burning a bin on the site.

A spokesperson for Kilwinning's community council said: "Damaging a historic monument is a criminal offence and will result in prosecution. Notices on the Abbey fences make this very clear.

"Volunteers work hard to maintain the Abbey ruins and grounds and this behaviour is unacceptable. The site is a very important part of the town's history and belongs to all members of the community. If you have any information about this offence please share it with the Police and help safeguard our heritage."

Any information can be reported to Kilwinning Locality Police on 101 - In an emergency always dial 999.
