Vile Nazi graffiti has appeared on the walls of a Scots primary school after a shocking vandalism attack.
Staff at St Francis Primary, near the Gorbals in Glasgow, were left horrified after the building was targeted overnight. Swastikas, “gang tags” and inappropriate images were found scrawled over the building in red marker pen on Tuesday morning, November 21.
Glasgow Live reports that the school has been a victim of nasty attacks over the years, involving smashed windows, a wilful fire, graffiti and vandalised playground equipment.
In a post shared to X, St Francis Primary addressed the vandalism along with pictures: “Another morning where our children have to encounter disgusting vandalism. Gang tags, smashed windows, bad language and inappropriate images have no place in our school.
“We ask our community please be vigilant. Our children deserve better!”
The incident has been reported to Police Scotland. Local councillor Labour Soryia Siddique has also contacted the Director of Education and is asking Glasgow officers to prioritise the matter.
St Francis’ janitor took it upon himself to remove the graffiti, in a follow-up the school said: “Our fabulous janitor trying to remove graffiti- he shouldn’t have to do this. Please report any concerns directly to the police.”
Police Scotland and Glasgow City Council have been approached for comment.
