Racist attack on curry house
Vandals have broken into an Indian restaurant and daubed racist graffiti on the walls.

Staff discovered the damage when they opened the Shezan restaurant in Lea Marston near Coleshill, Warwickshire, at 1145 BST on Thursday morning.

Food from containers was emptied, National Front slogans and racist graffiti were left daubed on the walls.

Furniture was smashed and the plasterboard ceiling was destroyed.

Damage to the restaurant has been put at around 25,000.

Warwickshire Police want to speak to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious after the restaurant closed on Wednesday night.
