Vandals spattered a house with pink and yellow paint.

Police are investigating after paint was thrown across two storeys of the outside of a West Hampstead house on Saturday (November 11) at 8.56pm.

The Metropolitan Police say officers were assigned within 20 minutes of the call being received and are in the process of carrying out further enquires.

Images shared online show pink and yellow paint splattered across the walls and windows of a white building.

There were initially concerns the attack might be antisemitic following the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, but MILAM Residents Association is said to have claimed there was a similar incident nearby in September, before recent hostilities in the Middle East began.

A spokesperson said: “We are aware of concerns that this was an antisemitic offence and we are working to establish the circumstances.

“The Met is clear that hate crime will not be tolerated in London.”

Cllr Sharon Hardwick said on social media network X, formerly known as Twitter: “The Met Police and CST continue to investigate and establish a motive.

“As the residents association has highlighted, a similar attack took place in early September just metres away. This was prior to the Middle East situation.”
