Anti-Islamic slogans have been spray painted on a building near a mosque in south London.
Scotland Yard said graffiti was found on a building near to the North Brixton Islamic Cultural Centre in Brixton Road at around 11am on Wednesday.
The force said it was working alongside Lambeth Council to remove the “offensive remarks” from the building as soon as possible.
Inquiries are ongoing at this time as part of a full investigation, the force added.
London mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “disgusted” by the incident, which comes just days after anti-Semitic symbols were daubed across several shop fronts and a synagogue in north London.
He tweeted: “Disgusted to hear that Islamophobic slogans have been spray painted near the North Brixton Islamic Centre.
“@metpoliceuk are working with Lambeth Council to have them removed, but let me be clear: all prejudice is cowardly and criminals will face the full force of the law.”

Vauxhall’s Labour MP Florence Eshalomi also tweeted about the incident, writing it was “disturbing”.
Earlier this week, anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled overnight on a north London synagogue and a number of shops as Jews celebrated Hanukkah.
The Star of David was graffitied in red and purple spray-paint alongside the numbers “9 11” on several different buildings in the Hampstead and Belsize Park area, including South Hampstead Synagogue.
The numbers reference an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory which claims Jews are responsible for the 9/11 terror attack which destroyed the World Trade Centre in New York.
