Norfolk Constabulary has arrested five youths after workers found swastikas and an offensive antisemitic message spray-painted on walls near the post office at Long Stratton Shopping Centre.
In a statement, Norfolk Constabulary confirmed: “Five youths, four males and one female aged between 13 and 16 years old, have been arrested in connection with the incident. They have since been release on police bail pending further enquiries until April. Anyone who may have information about the incident should contact PC Chris Shelley at Diss Police Station on 101.”
Brandon Drewry, who works in One Stop convenience store, told local media that “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.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism welcomes the speedy response from the police and will be following the case with interest.
