Police have closed an investigation into graffiti slogans about Gaza despite the culprit being caught on CCTV.

Slogans referring to the Israel and Palestinian conflict were sprayed on to a number of businesses across Norwich.

The Barclays bank branch in Red Lion Street was among those daubed with politically charged slogans stating it "funds genocide" in the early hours of March 8.

A Barclays cash machine in Bank Plain was also covered in graffiti on the same night between 5.15am and 5.20am.

As part of its investigation into the attacks police released CCTV images showing a man on a bicycle spray painting the bank building. 

He was wearing a face mask and beanie hat which disguised his identity but it was hoped it would lead to information that would see him arrested.

However, police have now confirmed that the case has been closed after “all lines of enquiry have been exhausted” with  the culprit now identified.

“Of course, we would always review any new information provided to us,” said a spokeswoman.

The incidents were part of a spate of similar Gaza related graffiti being spray painted across the city centre. 

A business in Benedicts Street was hit on March 7, Tesco on Westlegate was daubed with words on Mach 8, and a business in Agricultural Hall Plain on March 11.

The graffiti came after protests across the UK at Barclays branches about the Israel-Gaza conflict.

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign, which organised pickets along with other groups, previously told supporters: “Barclays bank holds substantial financial ties with arms companies supplying weapons and military technology to Israel, used in its attacks on Palestinians.”

The bank has defended offering services to defence firms.

A spokesman added: “Barclays is committed to respecting human rights as defined by the International Bill of Human Rights and takes account of other internationally accepted human rights standards and frameworks."
