Extensive damage has been caused to an East Kilbride church following a break-in.

St Leonard's RC Church on Brancumhall Road was targeted between noon on Tuesday (November 29) and 8am on Wednesday (November 30).

It is thought the intruders climbed the scaffolding erected outside the chapel to gain entry and cause extensive damage to the interior.

Inspector Maurice Lindsay said: "Police are currently investigating damage caused to the chapel.

"We are looking to trace anyone who may have been seen near to the location.

"Anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area should contact East Kilbride police."
