Black Lives Matter graffiti on buildings and signs in Elgin's Cooper Park
Contribute to support quality local journalism
SEVERAL buildings and signs in Elgin's Cooper Park were hit by graffiti over the weekend.
Black Lives Matter slogans were spray-painted in a number of locations in the town's park.
It is not known who is responsible for the graffiti – with no known reports having been made to police.
The graffiti was first spotted on Saturday, with some still visible this morning.
However, the majority has now been covered up by members of the public – who were down re-painting buildings on Saturday night.
This is the second time Elgin's pavilion, which overlooks the pond, has been vandalised this year – after swastikas were scrawled on the building in January.
The exterior of the building was painted by members of Moray College UHI's Future Focus class, who were working towards a SQA Personal Development Award, just last summer.
