Vandals paint abusive messages on building

HATE messages have been painted across a Freemasons building.

Abusive language, which was thought to be anti-Semitic, were daubed across the front and side walls of the Harwich Masonic Hall in Main Road.

The offensive language appeared sometime between 7pm on Monday, January 28 and 9am Tuesday, January 29.

The police are now investigating.

A spokesman said: “We would like to hear from anyone with information, or who saw someone acting suspiciously.

“We would also ask for people who may have seen someone coming home with paint on their clothes to contact officers at Harwich police station.”

The words have now been painted over.

Anyone with information should call Harwich police on 101.

more police presence would mean that this kind of stuff would be harder to do!
we pay council taxes and road taxes and a zillion other taxes (both direct and hidden) for such things as policing, refuse collection, roads, public transport etc. so what on earth is going on ?

Sounds like it could be the work of older (possibly elderly) vandals rather than youngsters who would not know what "anti-semitic" means.
