Racist graffiti reappears in Peterborough park

Racist graffiti reappears in Peterborough park

Categories: Latest News

Monday December 12 2016

BBC News and Peterborough Today both report on repeat instances of vandalism in Ferry Meadows Park in Peterborough.

The newspaper states it is the seventh time in two weeks that racist graffiti has been reported while BBC News Cambridgeshire claims it is the eighth time in a month reports of vandalism on park property have been logged.

Some of the images of the graffiti shared on the BBC page shows racist scrawling of the words “choke on halal” and “no halal” daubed on surfaces.

A spokeswoman from the Nene Park Trust, which maintains Ferry Meadows, told the local paper: “We were hit again overnight last night. We have a team working hard now to cover the signs which have been affected. We do not want people seeing what was written on them as it is offensive.”

The spokeswoman said: “We are working with police to find out who is behind this – police have told us it is a group of individuals.”

The Trust confirmed “paths, bridges and buildings have also been hit”.

Police are urging anyone with information to call 101. Or alternatively, to call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
