Probe into 'defecating on floor among books' at Stonehaven Library
Police are probing two incidents of someone defecating on the floor among the books in a library.
The incidents, at Stonehaven Library, in the Aberdeenshire town's Evan Street, both happened within the past month.
Aberdeenshire Council said one of the incidents, on a Saturday, forced the library to close.
A Grampian Police spokeswoman told the BBC Scotland news website an investigation was under way.
A council spokesman said: "We can confirm that Grampian Police are now investigating following two incidents at Stonehaven Library within the last month.
"As a result of the second incident, the library was closed on Saturday 18 August.
"As the incident is now the subject of a police investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further."
