A three-year-old child was caught with a gang of children who were vandalising a building in Dundee, it has emerged.

A freedom of information request revealed the child had been the youngest member of the group.

BBC Scotland has learned that the children had been throwing paint at a house which was due for demolition in the Fintry district of Dundee.
