A CCTV appeal has been launched after two men left racist graffiti and caused criminal damage at a building site in Hatfield.
At around 6pm on Friday, March 12, the pair got onto the site in Minster Close where they damaged building equipment, windows and CCTV cameras.
A racist slur was also spray-painted on to a container before the men left the scene.
Investigating officer, PC Lee Rowson said: “We have a CCTV footage of a person who was in the area and might be able to help our enquiries.
“We believe them to be under the age of 18 so to protect their identity, we’re sharing a cropped image of their clothing in the hope that someone might recognise it.
