Dumfries and Galloway hilltop wind mast vandals hunted  

Credit:  BBC News | 20 May 2014 | www.bbc.co.uk ~~

Police are hunting vandals who brought down and destroyed a 40m mast used to measure wind speeds on a hilltop north of Dumfries.

The incident happened at Auchenra Hill near Guillyburn in Kirkmahoe some time between 2 May and 16 May.

Police said the mast, which had an estimated value of £15,000, had been damaged beyond repair.

The masts are generally used to measure wind speeds to check a location’s suitability for turbines.

Police said they had not ruled out possible links to anti-wind farm protesters and were seeking information about any suspicious activity around other such masts.
