Police have released CCTV footage of a man they want to speak to as part of an investigation into a swastika being graffitied onto a black woman's house.

The "abhorrent" symbol was sprayed on Margaret Ogunbanwo's home in Penygroes, Gwynedd the early hours of Saturday morning.

The mother-of-two found it as she was leaving her house for a walk.

Mrs Ogunbanwo said the obscene image "stopped her in her tracks".

The painting of the racist symbol outside their home has left them shaken and upset.

She said: "I couldn't believe it, I was stopped in my tracks. And then I thought I better not go for my walk because if someone feels this way towards me and my family I might be putting myself in danger," she said.

North Wales Police said it is "unacceptable for people to be targeted in this way."

Mrs Ogunbanw's online business selling sauces and spice mixes has been "flooded" with orders as people show their support.
