Police say it happened sometime between Friday the 17th and Sunday the 19th of August, likely when the castle was open to the public.

Two Occupation-era bunkers and a lookout tower at the top of the castle were targeted.

Officers say the vandal would have had to climb over wooden barriers, as some of the rooms graffitied had been fenced off.

Anyone who saw anyone drawing the symbols, or acting suspiciously is asked to contact the police on 01534 612612, or Crimestoppers anonymously.
