Vandals smashed the office window of the Walthamstow MP overnight (Sunday, June 23). Labour MP Stella Creasy took to X, formerly Twitter, to share photos of her office in Orford Road which was attacked in the early hours of this morning.

Pictures of the Walthamstow Village office show more than a dozen cracks in the window. Metropolitan Police has launched a CCTV appeal following the incident.

Reacting to the attack, Ms Creasy said: "Message to whoever attacked my office last night. You don’t intimidate me and you don’t belong in the political process. Same as those circulating malicious and false leaflets. Police already on this to find you - will press for the strongest penalties for such an anti-democratic attack and I know Walthamstow won’t be cowed or influenced by your violence either."

The Met is urging anyone with information of the attack to get in touch. Officers believe it happened between 3.10am and 3.30am this morning. Detective Superintendent Dion Brown, one of the senior officers responsible for policing Waltham Forest, said: "It is entirely unacceptable for the office of one of London's prospective parliamentary candidates to be targeted in this way.
