Two swastikas were daubed in Watford High Street over the weekend, with the offensive graffiti being discovered on Saturday morning.

In a statement, police said they “are investigating an incident of racially or religiously aggravated criminal damage on Watford High Street” after they were made aware of the “antisemitic graffiti”.

“Watford Borough Council were informed and their contractor worked to remove the graffiti yesterday (Monday 26 April).”

“Anyone who has information about this crime should please report it online at herts.police.uk/report, use online web chat at herts.police.uk/contact or call our non-emergency number 101 quoting reference 41/30499/21.”

Rabbi Mordechai Chalk, Rabbi at Watford & District Synagogue, said: “The daubing of swastikas in the centre of town is shocking. It is a friendly and inclusive place to live with a diverse community including hundreds of Jewish residents.”

We are pleased the police have dealt with it so quickly and thank them for their support.”
