YOUNG vandals targeted a West Fife school for a second time just days after setting a bin on fire.

The Press reported last week that yobs shouted abuse at 999 crews tackling the blaze at St Serf’s Primary School in High Valleyfield on January 12.

And there was more trouble on Saturday night as the youths returned to the school, leaving the area strewn with rubbish and broken glass.

South West Fife Police’s social media said they had also received a number of youth disorder calls across West Fife on Friday evening and now Community Inspector Stephen Kay warned they were committed to ensuring those responsible were dealt with “robustly”.

“We recognise that anti-social behaviour causes a huge amount of distress to local people and their communities,” he said.

“Over the past month we have seen a slight increase in the number of calls reporting nuisance and disruptive behaviour in the Dalgety Bay and High Valleyfield areas.

“This behaviour is not only illegal, but can also put people’s safety at risk from the senseless actions of a minority of individuals.

“I’d urge parents to engage with their children and reinforce our messages that this sort of behaviour is against the law and be mindful of where their children are and what they are doing.

“Anyone with concerns about anti-social behaviour in their area can report this to us on 101, or visit your local police station to speak with your community policing team.”
