AN INVESTIGATION into the theft of UKIP banners has been launched by Isle of Wight police.
The two 15ft banners, which read Vote UKIP, were taken from an address in Fishbourne Lane, between 8pm on Saturday and 4pm on Sunday.
Isle of Wight party chairman Rose Lynden-Bell said she was appalled by the theft and claimed it showed a wave of political suppression in society.
"UKIP are a party of free speech and I am fearful of the motives that lie behind actions that seek to deny that freedom, and I do not care to consider the natural conclusion if these actions are not challenged," she said.
Police appealed for anyone with information to contact Ryde Police Station on 101.
