The signs between Norwich and Reepham at Alderford were graffitied and smashed a fortnight ago.

Overnight new signs on the same road were sprayed with graffiti.

ITV News Anglia's spoken to election agents who told us the signs will cost around £50 to each to replace and the vandalism is infuriating.

Police have told us to keep a note of all the vandalism. In the past people have been prosecuted in the constituency for vandalising election signs. In the current climate the anger shown to politicians is getting worse. People are very incensed by everything which has been going on and even the behaviour of people in hustings events has been bad. Hopefully when the election is over we can move on and the anger will calm down, but it certainly isn't pleasant, it's the worst I've seen in 20 years."
