Falkirk police are appealing for help to trace those responsible for vandalising artwork in the grounds of the Helix park.

An inscription in the stonework around The Kelpies has been daubed by paint.

It is the words of poet Jim Carruth ‘Bow down your strong heads to taste the water, Stretch up your long necks to face the sun’.
