TOWN hall clean-up teams have leapt into action after vandals daubed disgraceful Nazi graffiti over a park in Anchorsholme.

The shocking images of swastikas and wartime moto sieg heil – meaning hail victory –- had been painted across a shelter on the park by mindless vandals. The graffiti was even more spiteful in that it is Amistice Day tomorrow and Remembrance Sunday – where the country stops to remember its war dead – this weekend.

Locals contacted The Gazette to report their disgust with the vandals.

Blackpool Council said they had sent staff down to the park as soon as they were told about the issue and it has now been removed.

Russ Weaver, head of neighbourhood services in the authority, added: “It is very disappointing to see facilities we have put in place for local people defaced in this way.

“This particularly offensive graffiti was removed within 24 hours by the council.

“On the last occasion it was defaced, the culprit was found and made to clean it off under the supervision of police officers and council staff.

“We work closely with the police on a day to day basis to prevent this kind of incident.”
