Mosque sprayed with racist graffiti

A mosque being built in Worcestershire has been broken into and graffiti including swastikas sprayed on to the walls and windows.

The damage at the mosque in Jinnah Road, Redditch, was caused between 02:00 BST and 04:30 BST. Graffiti was sprayed over at least six windows.

The intruders forced their way through a gate and broke into the main building.

Police have increased patrols in the area and are now guarding the site.
