Three teenagers have been charged by police in connection to far-right and anti-Semitic graffiti being sprayed on walls in Long Stratton earlier this year.

On Friday, February 17, Police were called to reports of criminal damage to some public toilets in Swan Lane and offensive wording sprayed onto the walls of an nearby alleyway.

At the time, five teenagers were arrested in connection with the damage which included swastikas and offensive wording.

A 15-year-old boy has now been charged with three counts of criminal damage and two boys, aged 13 and 14 years old, have been charged with one count of criminal damage.

A 14-year-old girl has been issued with a youth caution for criminal damage and arson whilst a fifth youth who was arrested will have no further action taken.

All three charged teenagers will appear before Norwich Youth Court on Tuesday, June 27.
