Castle and lighthouse daubed with swastikas


Police are investigating after a series of swastikas were sprayed onto the bunkers at Corbiere and Elizabeth Castle.

In an appeal for information, Police said the graffiti appeared yesterday (Wednesday 14 August).

The acts of "malicious damage" were believed to have taken place at the castle between 09:00 and 13:00 and at the lighthouse between 18:45 and 19:10.

"At both sites swastikas were spray painted, and the letters ‘HH’ and ‘SS’ were written in black pen. At the Corbiere bunkers a yellow spray can was used, and at Elizabeth Castle a black spray can," the Force said.

They are now investigating the daubing incidents and are particularly looking to speak to two young men parked in Corbiere around 18:45 on Wednesday evening. Both were reportedly sitting in a vehicle described as similar to an old-style blue VW polo, with the driver said to have "bushy ginger/blonde hair."

Anyone with information is urged to call Police on 612612 or make an anonymous report via the Crimestoppers website.
