Anti-Semitic graffiti found in Cottrell toilets

The graffiti featured Nazi symbols and anti-Semitic language.

One of the toilet cubicles in the X-corridor of the Cottrell building had to be made out of order after anti-Semitic graffiti was drawn on the wall.

Someone had drawn a swastika on the cubicle wall and had written an anti-Semitic slur underneath.

The student who discovered the graffiti reported it to the Students’ Union, who passed it on to the university.

They described the graffiti as ‘particularly vile’.

The university then closed the cubicle while the graffiti was cleaned.

A spokesperson for the university said that the graffiti had been removed.

Photos of the graffiti showed other sectarian and football-related and political graffiti on other parts of the wall.
