Graffiti daubed in various locations
PATROLS have been stepped up in Hook after anti-Muslim graffiti was sprayed on walls near the village’s railway station.
The graffiti was daubed on the night of Saturday, August 24 in Station Road, at locations including the Tesco supermarket, the railway bridge and a bus stop.
It has since been removed, but police officers carried out high-visibility patrols around the village to reassure residents and deter further incidents.
PC Natalie Gardner, from the Hook safer neighbourhoods team, said: “This is an extremely rare occurrence but may have caused distress and upset to those who saw it.
“I would strongly appeal to anyone who may have information about this incident to contact police as this behaviour is unacceptable.”
She urged anyone who heard any noise or disturbance that night, or saw any suspicious people or cars or discarded spray cans to call 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
