Police in Godalming investigating malicious poster campaign
The bogus notices have been pinned to the doors of public buildings in the area including the Denningberg Centre in Godalming, sometime between 5pm on Friday, 20 July and 9am on Monday, 23 July.
The information on the fliers refers to allocation of housing in the borough in an offensive manner and those who posted the information are unknown.
Waverley Neighbourhood Inspector Tom Budd said: "This type of malicious, discriminatory communication will not be tolerated and Surrey Police will look to prosecute those responsible. It is totally unacceptable to put such offensive messages out in the community which could stir up tensions amongst residents. I would appeal to anyone who knows who is responsible for this activity to call Surrey Police as soon as possible.
Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference WV/12/3170. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
