A police probe has been launched after far-right and anti-Semitic graffiti was sprayed at a Long Stratton shopping centre.

Businesses are clearing up the mess at South Norfolk Shopping Centre after finding the spray paint on shop windows and alleyways.

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

He said: 'They have sprayed our windows and cameras and we haven't been able to clear it up as we're waiting for a bill on the costs. It has angered me a lot, I have been here for six years and haven't seen anything like it. It reflects the area in a bad way.'

South Norfolk Police said on their Twitter account: 'We are currently dealing with multiple reports of criminal damage in Long Stratton. Persons currently in custody and investigations are continuing.'
