Police hunt vandals of old hospital buildings in Norwich

Police are hunting vandals who have sprayed graffiti and smashed glass in two derelict buildings on the old hospital site in Norwich.

The criminal damage in the Ivory and Memorial Buildings on Fellowes Plain, on the old Norfolk and Norwich Hospital site in St Stephens Road, includes damage to part of a building which is listed as a war memorial.

As such, the glass was supposed to be conserved and will now cost a considerable amount to replace.

The latest incident of damage happened between 1pm and 10pm on Tuesday, February 14.

Police say they are also concerned about the safety of people entering the buildings, which are derelict and are very unstable and unsafe.
