Sandwell mosque daubed with offensive graffiti

A Police investigation has been launched after offensive graffiti was daubed on the wall of a mosque in Sandwell, West Midlands.

Council workmen removed the offensive slogan within hours of its discovery at Cradley Heath Mosque and Islamic Centre in Plant Street yesterday.

Officers have a good relationship with the mosque and we are working with them and the local community to reassure them that we take this type of graffiti seriously and will seek to prosecute the offenders.

We are working on a number of lines of enquiry to trace those responsible and I would urge anyone with information to come forward.

– Superintendent Bas Javid, from Sandwell Police
