Swastika vandalism at Holocaust Centre condemned

Staff at the Holocaust Centre in Newark have condemned vandals who daubed swastikas on property belonging to two of the town's residents.

Dr James Smith, the centre's chairman, called the graffiti on a door on Mill Gate and car on Mill Lane "a disgraceful act".

Nottinghamshire Police said the incidents, which happened on 19 October, were "extremely unusual".

The force is treating the vandalism as a hate crime.
