Police in Dunfermline are investigating a theft from a one-year-old girl’s grave.
The incident happened between Saturday and Tuesday at the cemetery in Halbeath Road.
The father of the child, who passed away in September last year, visited the grave to find that a shrine that was set up over the weekend had been destroyed and various toys had been stolen.
Officers are urging anyone who can assist with their investigation to come forward.

“I would also ask those with any further information relevant to our ongoing inquiries contacts police immediately.”
