The dolphin in Victoria Park is one of two to be vandalised

Two dolphin art works that are part of a popular project in Aberdeen have been vandalised.

Fifty of the life-sized fibre glass models have been placed in parks and at the beach and city centre for 10 weeks before being auctioned for charity.

Each is painted with a different theme, from Aberdeen football colours to wartime fighter planes.

Dolphins in Victoria Park and Westburn Park have now been removed after being targeted.

It is hoped they will return after repairs.

The Wild Dolphins project has been organised by Wild in Art along with the Archie foundation at the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital and Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC).

It will be on show until the end of August.
