SWASTIKAS have been scrawled across a school wall in Oxford.

The Nazi graffiti was spotted daubed on a back wall of Cheney School in Headington today.

Oxford Mail:

It sits alongside further offensive wording including obscenities and a nod to Swedish YouTuber 'PewDiePie' - a reference reportedly made during the New Zealand shootings on Friday.

It is believed a gunman involved in the attack on a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, in which 49 people were killed, urged people to subscribe to 'PewDiePie' before opening fire.

PewDiePie later said on Twitter he was "absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person"

It is not known if this is what the graffiti in Oxford is referencing.

The graffiti, which is thought to have appeared this weekend, are said to be on a back wall of the secondary school by the playing fields.

The latest scrawlings follow a similar case late last year in which Nazi swastikas were sprayed on an Oxford Community Centre.

The Nazi graffiti was sprayed across the Quarry Pavilion, on Margaret Road, and prompted fears of hate crime in Oxford.
