RACISTS have targeted a home in Reydon, near Southwold.

Police are appealing for information to help them track down the people responsible for spray painting racist graffiti on the house in the last week of January.

The occupiers, who do not wish to be identified, have been subjected to eight racially aggravated attacks on their property since August 2001, including damage to a fish pond and slashed car tyres.

The latest incident occurred sometime between January 20-27.

Police are investigating and in consultation with Waveney District Council, appropriate measures have been taken, but officers believe local people might know who is responsible.

Community police officer Sgt Peter Goodfellow said: "Suffolk police will not tolerate racism and we are appealing to residents of Reydon to call us if they think they know who is causing this damage.

"We believe someone may have seen something or may have information and we would ask them to get in touch."

Anyone with any information should call 01986 835300 or Crimestoppers anonymously on freephone on 0800 555 111.
