Racist graffiti, including the words ‘Death to Islamic State’, has been sprayed onto an Alnwick building.

The vile vandalism, which also included a number of swastikas, has been smeared onto the former caretaker’s cottage, which is currently unoccupied, at the entrance to Allerburn Lea.

It is believed that the criminal damage happened overnight and Northumberland County Council staff have been on site this morning removing the paint.

Alnwick county and town councillor Gordon Castle condemned the graffiti, describing it as ‘extremely depressing’.
