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’.
The vandalism is thought to have occurred overnight last Wednesday, June 17 into Thursday.
Although the vehicle access to parks across the district is currently closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there is still access for those on foot.
Anyone with information is asked to call Falkirk Police on 101 and quote the reference number PS-20200618-0663.
