A Union Jack and a flag marking the centenary of the RAF have been stolen from a war memorial in a Sutherland village.

The 2m (6ft) by 1m (4ft) flags were reported missing from the monument in Golspie on Monday morning.

Constable Stephen Mackenzie said: "These flags were put in place at the memorial by members of the local community.

"For someone to steal them is particularly disrespectful."

He added: "We would urge anybody who saw anything suspicious in the area or has information which could assist us to get in touch as soon as possible."
