The Sun reports on a police appeal to trace a man who plastered “racist and anti-Semitic” stickers across London Underground stations last month.
British Transport Police have released an image of the man they wish to speak to in connection with the sighting of the offensive stickers which were posted at Piccadilly Circus and Covent Garden tube stations between January 10 and January 12.
The paper reports that seven stickers have been found so far. The stickers are said to feature “Nazi terminology” and to have “swastikas drawn on”.
Officer Ben Hurley said, “There is no place for intolerance and racism in our society and we take a firm stance against anyone who carries out these offences.
“All instances of hate crime are taken extremely seriously and we would actively encourage anyone who has spotted these stickers on public transport to contact us.”
Anyone with information should call 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference 174 of 07/02/2017. Alternatively, members of the public can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
In December 2016, British Transport Police arrested a 46 year old man in connection with “racist Pakemon” stickers which were found pasted at bus stops, cashpoints and tube stations in the capital.
