Anger over swastika graffiti near North-east tourist attractions

A councillor has warned that racist graffiti near two North-east tourist attractions could drive visitors away.

Vandals daubed a massive swastika on a building near Fraserburgh’s Museum of Scottish Lighthouses and Heritage Centre, both of which draw in thousands of tourists each year.

And last night local councillor Brian Topping slammed those responsible for the crime, calling for anyone who knows the people involved to contact the police.

He said: “I sincerely hope that the individual or individuals responsible are ashamed of themselves. It’s utterly despicable.”
