Between Wednesday 14 February and Thursday 15 February 2024, there were six incidents of criminal damage reported in St John Way, Peverell Avenue East and The Great Field in Poundbury.

It is reported that graffiti was sprayed, and some of it had a racial or anti-Semitic element.

“We are following all available lines of enquiry and would ask anyone who saw what happened, or has information about who was responsible, to please come forward.

“Local officers will be carrying out enquiries in the area and can be approached by anyone while out on patrol with information or concerns.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55240023829. Alternatively, independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously online at or by calling Freephone 0800 555 111.
