Vandalism that was sprayed on a mural of Marcus Rashford is "not believed to be of a racial nature", say police.

The work in Withington, where Rashford grew up, was defaced after England lost in the Euro 2020 final.

Officers say they have several lines of inquiry and are "keeping an open mind" about the possible motive.

The mural, which was covered in positive messages after the vandalism, has since been restored by street artist Akse.

Greater Manchester Police said officers were examining CCTV from the area and forensic evidence from the spray paint used.

I Call True: Having now done a web search I see that the graffiti doesn't appear to be racial and I guess maybe we all got swept up in the anger following the racist tweets online, and just made the assumption that this was as well.

Good to see that leads are still being followed up though to catch these idiots.

Even though not racist it still doesn't justify vandalism does it.

Keeping an open mind about the motive, they must be the only people in the UIK who didn't see the England football game against Italy last week https://bit.ly/3xES9MN

Did the same as Frank ad I didn't know what the wording was, it was just vulgar swear words out of frustration by the looks of things
