Racist graffiti in South Wales park

Racist graffiti has been daubed all over a problem-plagued Neath family park. Messages of hate – which included “blacks and Muslims out” – were scrawled on walls and floors at Gnoll Country Park. Local councillor and racial equality champion Peter Rees said: “Gnoll Country Park is a place where many families and nationalities go. So, to have racist graffiti sprayed there is totally unacceptable.” A local mum, who did not want to be named, said: “They were sprayed all over the floor and near the memorial. “They read ‘blacks and Muslims out’ – I could not believe what I was seeing.”
