Vandals have smashed the windows in a Scots bank in an overnight attack.

Police Scotland is investigating the damage done to the Barclays branch on Union Street in Aberdeen.

The vandalism was first reported to the force around 4am on Tuesday, May 24.

It comes just days after a glass door at a Glasgow Barclays was smashed to pieces.

Shocked employees were seen analysing the damage at the Argyle Street branch on Friday, May 20. 

It is understood the two incidents are not being treated as linked.
