Security Cameras At Noirmont Point?

12th June 2018

The Channel Islands Occupation Society could be forced to splash out on security cameras, after a bunker at Noirmont was littered with swastikas yet again.

68 were spray-painted across the site sometime over the weekend. They are now being cleaned off by volunteers.

The same thing happened last August, just weeks after an identical attack in St Ouen.

Occupation spokesman Tony Pike wants the States to step in and help.

“We need more frequent police patrols. I think we’re going to have to start, regrettably, looking at security cameras.

“It is very regrettable. It’s a very sad state of affairs. It’s a repeat offence. It’s happened before and it’s the last thing we need.”

The Society doesn’t receive any funding from the government, with its volunteers having to look after the site and deal with any issues.

Mr Pike says it’s simply unacceptable.

“In Normandy, you don’t see swastikas daubed around. We’re trying to promote this island as a destination to see our fortifications. To see this disrespect, particularly in a war memorial, that’s even worse.

“It’s just awful. I just don’t understand the mentality of somebody wanting to do this. It’s not a 5 minute job, they’ve been around for, I’d say, around an hour.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 612612 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
