AN HISTORIC Isle of Wight building has been vandalised.

The building at the end of East Cowes Esplanade, thought to be part of the Norris Castle estate, has been daubed with eight foot high graffiti. The privately-owned Grade I listed Norris Castle dates back to 1799.

The mural, which features a knight's helmet in the centre, is thought to have been sprayed on the building within the last week.

East Cowes resident Michelle Tombleson, who sent these pictures, said: "I was astounded when I saw it, I think it's disgusting. That building is part of our heritage."
