Swastikas have been graffitied in locations around Barnstaple.

Police were called to 'Barnhenge' roundabout on Thursday night after reports of graffiti in the area, but no-one was around when they arrived.

However, they discovered swastikas painted on the stones. 

When they had a look around the area, more graffiti was found in phone booths on The Strand, on the pavement in between them and on a cafe.  They also found graffiti on the subway near Long Bridge and on St Paul's Church at Sticklepath.

The council have been informed so the paint can be removed as soon as possible.

Police have an 18 year old in custody.
