Five teenagers have been arrested in connection with far-right and anti-Semitic graffiti which was sprayed on shop windows in Long Stratton.

Police were called at 11.30pm on Friday to reports of a number of buildings, shop windows and alleyways which had suffered criminal damage after offensive wording was spray-painted onto them.

Brandon Drewry, who works in One Stop convenience store, said members of staff found swastikas and an offensive anti-Semitic message near the post office.
