Vandalism at home of gay row councillor

VANDALS who targeted the home of beleaguered councillor David Silvester have been condemned by police.

Three youngsters threw eggs at the house in Luker Avenue, Henley, and hung a gay pride banner on the wall.

It followed comments made by the 73-year-old town councillor in which he blamed the recent storms and floods on the legalisation of gay marriage.

Police are investigating this week’s incident and have been handed photographs and a note that were delivered anonymously to the Henley Standard.

Insp Mark Harling, head of Henley police, said: “This is pointless behaviour and not the type of activity that is going to be taken seriously in a sensitive debate of this kind.
