Northumbria Police said they were ‘horrified’ to discover signs aimed at saving lives and protecting the NHS had been vandalised with swastikas.

Volunteer police officers found a number of signs along the coast between Seaton Sluice and Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, had been spray painted with the racist graffiti.

At least five locations where public car parks had been closed due to coronavirus lockdown rules over a two mile stretch were attacked. One sign sprayed with the Nazi symbol read: ‘Car park closed, stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives’.

Council teams have since been sent out to clean the swastikas from the signs after Northumbria Police flagged them.

A spokesperson for the police said: ‘Whilst on patrol in the Blyth Road, Whitley Bay area, one of our special constables was horrified to come across two swastikas spray-painted on to car park closure signs at the car park approaching St Mary’s Lighthouse.’
