Vandals have scrawled offensive graffiti on the door of a building a Muslim community wants to use as a mosque.

The graffiti was spotted on the front door of the Bank Chambers building in Green Lane, which is owned by a Muslim group that has had two applications to turn the building into a mosque for the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jama'at  branch of Islam turned down, over the weekend.

The graffiti, which says "f*** off c****", has been reported to police.

The large swastika had to be painted-over so no-one could see it earlier this year

It is not the first time the building has been targeted by vandals, earlier this year someone daubed a swastika on the same door.

If you have any information about the graffiti you can call police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
