Police in Hammersmith and Fulham Borough investigating graffiti daubed on a Polish centre in Hammersmith last year are appealing for the public's help in identifying a man they wish to speak to.

Officers have released images taken from CCTV at the time of the incident on 26 June 2016 and appealing for anyone who may recognise the man to contact them.

On Sunday, 26 June 2016 police were called to King Street, W6 at 10:25hrs after offensive graffiti was daubed on the front of a Polish Social and Cultural Association.

The incident is believed to have occurred at 05:23hrs on Sunday, 26 June 2016, and is being treated as a hate crime.

DC Robert Rodak, from Hammersmith and Fulham's Community Safety Unit, said:

"Our enquiries are ongoing and I am now appealing for the public's help in identifying this man.

"We take incidents of hate crime very seriously so I am keen to hear from anyone who may think they recognise him.

"Anyone who contacts us will have their information dealt with in the strictest of confidence."

Anyone who recognises the man, or who has any information on who he might be, is urged to contact DC Rodak on 020 246 2605, or non-emergency police number 101, or by tweeting @MetCC.

To give information anonymously Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111 or at crimestoppers-uk.org.

The single suspect involved has been captured on CCTV which shows him approach the location on a pedal cycle with a white frame and stop on top of the stairs outside the door. He is then seen to spray yellow graffiti on the doors of the community centre before making off on his bike in the direction of Hammersmith Broadway. He was wearing an orange hi-vis jacket over a grey hoodie.

There have been no arrests in this investigation.
