Nazi swastikas and white pride symbols have been scrawled in Abingdon.

The Nazi graffiti was spotted daubed on Tower Close wooden bridge in Abingdon.

A local snapped a picture of the graffiti but says it has since been covered up, he added that this is not the only time he has seen a Nazi symbol in Abingdon.

He said: “Thankfully this particular symbol has since been covered, but if you walk around south Abingdon you will see various Nazi symbols, some of which have now been painted over.

“I also saw SS bolts and white pride/power painted on a bench in Caldecott Recreation Ground.”

Twitter user @AntiSystemUK has also shared a picture of Nazi signs he found in Abingdon.
