CLYDEBANK’S MSP has spoken out after the town’s iconic Titan Crane was subjected to vandalism.
On Friday August 26, vandals climbed up onto the structure and removed lights, throwing them off the crane.
Clydebank police have issued an appeal for more information - but the incident has provoked a fierce reaction from the public, including Gil Paterson MSP and Martin Docherty-Hughes MP.
Mr Paterson said: "Damage to the Titan Crane like this is not just random vandalism but a crime against the whole of Clydebank. Because of what the Titan Crane means to the town, it's an attack on the community.
“Wanton violence is not acceptable in any shape but particularly when you're attacking an iconic landmark that is so important to Clydebank and its people.
“I hope the police are able to track down those responsible and bring about justice – and I urge anyone in the public who may know anything to get in touch with them.”
