A senseless act of vandalism in El Hierro occurred yesterday on a new viewpoint on the HI-50 that connects the Valle del Golfo with the town of Sabinosa. Today the Cabildo de El Hierro have denounced this act of vandalism and police are investigating to find the perpetrators of this crime.

The work on this new viewpoint culminated yesterday morning and already by that evening they the safety glass had been smashed with rocks, in what the El Hierro Cabildo describes as "inexplicable and unjustifiable vandalism."

From the Cabildo de El Hierro they assure that this act is the product of the misunderstanding and lack of civility of people "without any scruples when it comes to attacking urban furniture", whose membership is not of any specific institution, but to the citizens who wish to use and enjoy it.
