According to a report published by the Eastern Daily Press, police have launched a probe into the incident. Business staff found the offensive graffiti spray painted upon their arrival for work.
Staff at the One Stop convenience store found swastikas and an anti-Semitic message spray-painted near the post office.
“They have sprayed our windows and cameras and we haven’t been able to clear it up as we’re waiting for a bill on the costs. It has angered me a lot, I have been here for six years and haven’t seen anything like it. It reflects the area in a bad way,” Brandon Drewry told EDP.
South Norfolk Police were prompt in their response, tweeting on the department’s official account: “We are currently dealing with multiple reports of criminal damage in Long Stratton. Persons currently in custody and investigations are continuing.”
