Police are investigating the latest vandalism at Fort William Football Club’s Claggan Park ground.

Vandals recently struck at the ground, damaging seats, leaving broken bottles and entering the clubhouse.

Then, last Saturday, someone lifted recently laid turf covering new drainage areas on the park.

In a response to the damage, Clachnacuddin supporter William Corbett launched a fund-raising appeal which has already amassed £1,750 of its £2,500 target.

In an online statement, the club commented: ‘We are so grateful for this brilliant effort from everyone and an extra special thank to the man who made this happen, William Corbett. This will give us enough money to have CCTV round the park and hopefully stop it happening in the future.’
