VANDALS have graffitied Leamington’s Queen Victoria statue and a police van which was parked outside the town’s police station.
The van was sprayed while parked outside the station in Newbold Terrace over the night of Sunday (September 27) and Monday (September 28).
The van is now off the road while the graffiti is removed and police try to identify those responsible.
The same graffiti was discovered by officers earlier today (Tuesday September 29) on the Queen Victoria statue in The Parade.
Sgt Trent McMurray from the Leamington Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “This is a disgusting act of vandalism.
“At a time when my team are working hard to protect people in Leamington during the pandemic, it is really disappointing to be treated in this way. It’s clear some people have no respect for society.
“We have carried out enquiries including viewing CCTV from the area but have been unable to identify those responsible.”
