Police have launched an investigation to find the person who spray-painted a Nazi hate symbol in a Fife park.
A swastika was discovered daubed on a vandalised noticeboard at Riverside Park, Glenrothes, as the world marked Holocaust Memorial Day.
The smashed remains of the board were left lying on the ground.
The discovery of the swastika, viewed as a symbol of anti-Semitism and hate in many western countries, has been condemned.
Glenrothes SNP MP Peter Grant said: “Any deliberate act of vandalism is to be deplored, but to deface public property with Nazi symbols is sickening.
“It’s almost beyond belief that on Holocaust Memorial Day, when the world was remembering the six million Jews and millions of other people who were murdered by the Nazis, anyone could choose to display the emblem of that evil regime.”
