Racist symbols have been scratched into cars in a Dagenham housing estate.
A resident at Aston House, part of the Academy Central development in Longbridge Road, spotted the hateful signs and called police at 9.52pm on Sunday.
Multiple cars in the building’s premium underground car park were damaged, including a navy blue Mercedes with the initials ‘NF’ (National Front) etched into the bonnet and side. Another, a grey Kia, had a large Nazi swastika on its bonnet.
The building’s stairwell door had been broken down, said one resident who asked not to be named.
“It is very distressing,” he said.
