Police probe after Tory and Labour offices vandalised in Aberdeen
Tory councillor for Hazlehead Ross Thomson posted a picture of the graffiti on Twitter.
Police are investigating after Conservative and Labour party offices were vandalised in Aberdeen.
A swastika, the word "scum" and a letter Q believed to stand for "quisling" or "traitor", were painted on the front of Conservative offices in the city's West Mount Street.
Tory councillor and Aberdeen South candidate Ross Thomson posted a picture of the graffiti on Twitter on Saturday morning.
Scottish Labour's office in nearby Rosemount Place also had a large Q painted on the door.
Mr Thomson said: "Once again we see the ugly side of nationalism on display.
"People should engage in healthy democratic debate but attempts like this to try and intimidate and bully political opponents are utterly disgusting."
The graffiti is thought to have been painted at some point late on Friday night or the early hours of Friday morning.
Mr Thomson continued: "It happened at some point late last night or early this morning. It's a Q for "quisling". I do feel a bit intimidated, seeing it gives you a horrible feeling that you're being targeted."
The Conservative councillor said he had reported the incident to the police. He added: "It's an appalling crime to happen. I'm sure all parties would deplore it. I hope they catch who's responsible."
The offices have been targeted by vandals in the past. A Police Scotland spokeswoman said officers are investigating both incidents.
Referring to the vandalism at the Conservative office, the spokeswoman said: "Sometime between 5pm and 7am obscene words and symbols were painted on the windows. Enquiries are being carried out."
Anyone who saw any suspicious activity has been asked to call Police Scotland on 101.
