Organisers of an open gardens charity event say they are 'shocked' after signs advertising their event were vandalised and daubed with 'Vote Leave' slogans.
Signs advertising Thetford Open Gardens event were targeted between yesterday afternoon and this morning in Canterbury Way in Thetford.
The signs, which were put up by event sponsors Lawsons, had their cable ties removed, the poster bent in half, and 'Vote Leave' written on the white reverse.
The event takes place on Sunday at a variety of gardens across the town in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care.
Organiser Rachel Woods said she could not understand why the vandalism had taken place.

'We've had sign vandalised in the past and that was bad enough.
'But for people to do it for political ends, when the hospice is something which serves all of us is just not right,' she said.
