Arrest made for vandalism of MP’s office

A woman arrested on suspicion of spraying graffiti on a Tory MP's constituency office has been released by police while investigations continue.

The 49-year-old woman, from Stroud, Gloucestershire, was arrested on Monday (November 28) after the attack on the office of the town's Conservative MP Siobhan Baillie.

The doors of the office in King Street, Stroud, were sprayed with the words 'Get the Tories out' in red paint. The windows were also sprayed with messages saying: "Enough is enough" and "Voted against human rights." Smaller writing on the windows said "against people" and "Where's Baillie?"

Gloucestershire Constabulary said they were called to the office at 9am on Monday and made the arrest shortly afterwards.

A police spokesperson said: "The woman who was arrested has since been released under investigation pending further enquiries."

The police say the vandalism is not being linked to any other incidents, including a box of human excrement recently left outside the MP's office and abusive messages sent to her when she took maternity leave in the Spring of 2020.
