Tattie factory is torched by vandals.

FIREBUGS who caused more than PS100,000 of damage to a potato factory are being hunted by police.

The Albert Bartlett and Sons site in Airdrie was badly damaged after crates were set alight at the weekend.

Graffiti was also sprayed on the building but operations were not affected by the blaze on Saturday night.

Detective Constable Alan Urquhart said: "No one was in the building at the time of the fire, however, the damage to the property is significant and costly to repair.

"Officers are checking CCTV and speaking to people to establish who's responsible."

A spokesman for Albert Bartlett and Sons said: "We are helping police with their inquiries and would like to pass on our thanks to them and the fire service."
