Vandals in Edinburgh Scotland thought it was funny to superglue a babies changing table in the City’s museum.
The museum is currently exhibiting the new T-Rex display and parents Libby Fairbairn and her partner went along with their children three-month-old Sadie and 15-month-old James.
The 30-year-old mother went to the toilets area to change her daughter’s nappie and laid the youngster down on the changing table in the provided baby changing facility within the iconic museum.
Shock and horror hit in when she attempted to lift up the youngster and discovered that the child who was wearing a full baby grow was totally stuck to the table as it had been spread with superglue by vandals.
The poor young mother became distraught as she had to call her partner Nathan and wrestle their daughter who was stranded on the table and covered head to foot in super glue.
The baby eventually lifted when the baby suit tore away from the table but not before 5 minutes at least had passed causing the parents deep distress.
A National Museum of Scotland spokesperson said: “Our Visitor Experience staff were alerted to some concerning vandalism in the public toilets at the National Museum of Scotland over the weekend.
“Our Visitor Experience Managers responded quickly to assist those affected and to check the rest of the public facilities in the Museum.
“We will continue to rigorously check that all of our public facilities are regularly serviced to ensure that they are clean and safe.”
