Police are on the hunt for vandals behind anti-semitic and racist graffiti at Oakura's skate park.

A group of boys is understood to be behind the vandalism scrawled in blue spray paint at the park on Sunday.

Constable Richard Corry said it was the first time he had heard of such racist and violent graffiti at the village.

New Plymouth District Council Parks boss Mark Bruhn said the council operated a zero tolerance on graffiti and it would be painted over or removed as soon as possible.
