Tory election candidate 'sickened' by swastikas attack on posters
Nazi swastikas have been daubed on the posters of a Conservative General Election candidate.
Sheryll Murray, who is standing for re-election for South East Cornwall, condemned the attack and said she was "sickened".
Mrs Murray, who is a member of the Conservative Friends of Israel group in Parliament, is also a supporter of Holocaust Memorial Day and has visited the Auschwitz concentration camp.
"I am sickened by this attack on my posters which was signed with a swastika," she said.
"This symbol is incredibly offensive to both Jews who lost so many and the British who stood firm against its tyranny."
Mrs Murray's election agent, Bob Davidson, said: "This is clearly an attack from a group who despise Sheryll's longstanding support for the Jewish community.
"The posters were cut with a sharp implement so clearly they went prepared with something that could also be used as a weapon."
