Two men have been charged with reckless conduct for scaling one of the iconic Kelpies sculptures.

Police and Scottish Fire and Rescue raced to Helix Park near Falkirk just after 6.30pm last night after reports of two men climbing on one of the 100 foot sculptures.

The duo posed for photographs and sat admiring the view despite the police and traffic chaos below them.

After climbing down from the sculpture, the men, aged 21 and 23, were charged with culpable and reckless conduct.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Not only did the individuals put their own lives at risk, but their actions caused a significant amount of resources to be deployed but also impacted directly on traffic on the M9.

“Thankfully, the caution of drivers avoided significant incidents on the road.

“A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.”

The brazen duo even posted photographs on Facebook.

The Kelpies sculpture was made by world renowned artist Andy Scott.
