Man arrested over racist graffiti at Lynn pub

RACIALLY motivated graffiti has been daubed on a former Lynn pub which could become an Islamic community centre if plans are approved.

Police have arrested a 34-year-old Lynn man on suspicion of criminal damage to the Queen’s Arms pub in London Road, during the early hours of yesterday. The word “oink” was one of the words sprayed onto the side of the building.

And the body who are hoping to take over the site have described the vandalism as “unfortunate.”

As previously reported, the West Norfolk Islamic Association wants to use the building as a community and resource centre as well as a place of worship.

A planning application for a change of use of the building has now been submitted to West Norfolk Council.
