A CCTV image has been released by detectives from Southwark investigating racist graffiti sprayed on the outside wall of a bar on Herne Hill.

The graffiti was sprayed at around 1 am Monday 25th May.

It was reported to police around twelve hours later.

Detectives believe that the suspect is not, as previously stated, one of a group of overseas tourists who were staying at a flat nearby.

On Tuesday, 26th May, police were alerted to a name being circulated on social media in relation to the graffiti.

Officers spoke with the man named and established that he was not in London at the time of the incident.

He is not a suspect in the investigation.

Enquiries continue to identify the person responsible for the graffiti.

Anyone with information about the incident, or who can identify the man shown in the CCTV image, should call the Southwark Community Safety Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
