In what is an extraordinary incident for Stornoway, some of the supplies intended for the Eilean Siar foodbank have come under destructive attack.

Since early 2019, the local Foodbank has been making use of storage space in the disused Carlton pub in Francis Street.

Now it’s been broken into twice in a fortnight, with the vandals wreaking havoc sometime over last weekend

One of those involved said on Facebook: “It was disappointing to see the Carlton broken into again. This time they trashed the food bank section just for fun.

“If anyone knows who they are please tell the police, we can’t let people let this off with this type of behaviour. They open ended tins of beans and poured it everywhere, destroying a lot of food.”
