The swastika was painted on a village sign, a road sign and the carriageway of Holt Road in Gresham, sometime between 6pm on Friday, February 21 and 10am on Sunday, February 23.

A Gresham resident, who did not wish to be named, said she was disgusted to see the graffiti in the village.

She said: "It's horrible in a lovely little village like this.

"It's extremely offensive to see something like that. We really don't need that sort of behaviour."

The resident said she was aware of a problem with anti-social behaviour among a very small number of residents. She said swastikas had also been daubed on signs in Castle Close and Church Lane.
