Police are hunting a man thought to have spray painted racist graffiti against the Muslim faith at several locations across the Dedridge area of Livingston.
The graffiti is believed to have been sprayed from 2am on Saturday morning.
The man believed to be responsible is described as white, wearing a black baseball cap with ear flaps, and a red, white and blue striped football scarf wrapped round his face. He had a dark coloured zip up jacket, jeans and black boots.
He may have been wearing yellow ‘marigold’ gloves and using a large white coloured 18inch tin of red spray paint.
Detective Constable Steven Telford, who is leading the enquiry, said: “Anyone who recognises this man or has information about this incident is asked to call Police Scotland on 101 or anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
