Officers in Dunfermline are appealing for witnesses after a child was struck with an egg yesterday.

The incident happened around 2.30 p.m. within the Glen area of Pittencrief Park.

The 7-month-old girl was part of a group of adults and small children within pushchairs and prams when the egg was dropped from a bridge.

Fortunately, the infant was not injured and inquiries are ongoing to trace whoever was responsible.

Sergeant Kenny Bow from the Community Investigation Unit in Dunfermline said: “The fact that the child was unhurt during this incident is more down to luck than judgement. While we believe that this has been done as a prank rather than out of any malice o it is extremely dangerous to drop any item from height and the consequences could have been worse for those walking below.

“We would like to remind the public, in particular, children of the risks and consequences of such reckless behaviour.

“With it being the school holidays the Glen was extremely busy and we are appealing for anyone who may have seen the culprits, or who has any information to come forward.”
