Reports have surfaced that a roundabout has been removed from a children’s playground in a suburb of Norwich after it had been covered with swastika graffiti.
The roundabout at Fitzmaurice Park in Thorpe St Andrew has been removed after authorities were made aware of the vandalism, which seems to have been effected using marker pens.
A statement posted to Facebook by a spokesperson for Thorpe St Andrew Town Council said: “This kind of behaviour is a tremendous strain on both our working hours and the public funds which sustain open spaces and is the sort of thing we regularly deal with behind closed doors, so please bear with us whilst we make good.”
Campaign Against Antisemitism’s analysis of Home Office statistics shows that an average of over three hate crimes are directed at Jews every single day in England and Wales, with Jews more than four times likelier to be targets of hate crimes than any other faith group.
