A MILITARY statue has been found vandalised in a Glasgow park with one of the soldier’s feet cut off.

Damage was also found on the face and other foot of the Boer War memorial in Kelvingrove Park.

The statue depicts a Highland Light Infantry soldier and was erected in the early 1900s shortly after the conflict ended.

An inscription on the memorial reads: “To the memory of the officers, non-commissioned officers and men of the Highland Light Infantry who fell in the South African War, 1899, 1900-01-02, erected by comrades and friends.”

Police believe it was damaged by two teenagers wearing dark clothing between 11pm and 11.20pm on Tuesday. Officers are now appealing for information and hope any dog walkers in the area at the time can help.
