Police in the West are investigating after an excavator was used to damage a large area of heathland in Greeba.
The incident happened on the top of Beary Mountain, known as Twelve Shares, accessed from the top of Mill Road leading off Greeba Bridge.
Officers say those responsible used a digger to scrape off the surface heath over the past few weeks.
