Community Noticeboard Defaced

Worcester Park's community noticeboard has been defaced, with the word 'MOSQUE?' scrawled across across it.

The vandalism comes in the wake of growing controversy over possible plans for a mosque to be built in the derelict 'Bank Chambers' building on Green Lane.

The plans were revealed by this blog in March and the story was later picked up by the Sutton Guardian newspaper.

Blog readers have reported that homes in some areas of Worcester Park have had photocopies of the Sutton Guardian's article posted through their door - an article in which the paper failed to point out that the group which purchased the site have denied that they are planning to turn the building into a mosque.
