Racist and anti ethnic graffiti has been daubed in 20 foot high letters on the side of a gable wall in Southport.

The massive graffiti which takes aim at people of colour reads ‘it’s ok to be white’ was painted on the side wall adjacent to Bedford Park in Southport overnight.

Shocked residents in the area said they were appalled to wake up to face the graffiti and have called the police and council to sort it out.

As yet it’s believed police don’t have any suspects for the racially aggravated graffiti and there are no witnesses due it being painted overnight.

The council have been called to paint over the remark as soon as possible.
