Police in Jersey are trying to track down a vandal who painted swastikas on the walls of an occupation bunker shortly after D-Day commemorations.

The offensive Nazi symbol was daubed in bright red paint on several places across the historic site on the Channel Islands.

Police and locals believe the regular defacement of the bunkers, built when the Germans occupied Jersey during the Second World War, is down to a neo-Nazi repeatedly targeting them.

Tony Pike, president of the Channel Islands Occupation Society, which preserves and protects the historic bunkers, said things had got so bad they were now considering installing cameras in a desperate bid to catch the offender.

He said: "It has happened again which is disappointing, because these are places that bring tourism to Jersey.

"I don’t want to have to scrub it off again next year, so we are looking at other measures we can use.

"We will be putting in cameras in some areas to catch this person red handed.

"I believe it is the same person. I can tell that the symbols have been sprayed on the same. He is just going through the colour chart."

Tony said the society are now considering installing CCTV cameras in the bunker to catch the culprit.

He added: "It could be someone who objected to fortification, or it could be a neo-Nazi – and I think it is.

"They have sprayed HH and SS, which makes me think it is a neo-Nazi trying to spread their own agendas.

"They hide them in little places at the bunkers and the whole graffiti is just disrespectful."

Tony spent an entire day scrubbing the symbols off and has informed the States police that he believes it is the same person who has committed the acts each time.

He is appealing for people to come forward with any information.
