Officers are appealing for information after two reported incidents of racist graffiti in Harrogate.
The graffiti had been sprayed onto playground equipment in Panhandle Park which is located just behind Sherwood Drive in Harrogate.
Both incidents were reported to police between Saturday 23 October and Tuesday 26 October.
The graffiti has since been removed but required specialist attention to do so by Harrogate Borough Council.
Sergeant Alex Sellars of Harrogate Neighbourhood Policing team said:
“We take hate crime very seriously and it has no place in society. We would urge anyone who knows anything about these incidents to get in touch with us to assist with our investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to report it on our website or call 101.
You can also provide information anonymously via independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111 or through their website.
Please quote 12210229225 when providing information.
