A 54-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated criminal damage after “no blacks” was painted onto a door.

Superintendent Howard Millington of Greater Manchester Police’s Salford division said: “While we have a man in custody, our enquiries into this deplorable crime are very much ongoing.

“I want to emphasise that we are acutely aware of the strength of public feeling surrounding this incident.

“Both CID and neighbourhood officers are looking into this crime and we are working closely with our partners to
support the victim, as is the case in all hate crimes.

“Let me reassure people that where incidents of this nature take place, we will always pursue a prosecution,” he added.

The abusive message was left on the front door of solicitor Jackson Yamba and the entrance to the flats where he lives with his son, David, 10, and friend Theo Baya, in Salford, on 8 February.

Mr Yamba published a picture of the abuse online, sparking a public outcry after he revealed police had not contacted him more than a week after he reported it.
