An appeal for information has been launched by legionnaires in Grantown after damage was done to one of the wreaths laid at the war memorial on Remembrance Sunday.

"Poppy wreaths were laid as a mark of respect and remembrance by a number of organisations and individuals," posted the Royal British Legion Scotland's Strathspey branch.

"It is with great sadness that we must report that within 24 hours, the Grantown Grammar School wreath has been intentionally damaged, along with a wooden poppy cross.

"This disrespectful act is not acceptable and would urge anyone who has information regarding this incident to get in contact."

Anyone with information is being asked to message the branch on their Facebook page.
