Mystery surrounds the torching of a large wheelie bin on one of Galloway’s most remote roads earlier this week.

A Gazette reader got in touch after he had gone to use the bin, that sit at the crossroads between the Barraer and Barlaughlan farm roads, and found it had turned to ashes.

The incident was reported to the police and the Dumfries and Galloway Council.

A council spokesperson said: “Our council has been made aware of the burnt out wheeled bin today and arrangements are being made to replace it as soon as possible to minimise disruption to householders.”
