A man has been charged after 'racially aggravated' graffiti was sprayed on a wall and road sign.
Jethro Morris was arrested after police received reports of the offensive messages in Hythe.
One such message was quickly removed from a wall in Military Road, after it was reported to Folkestone and Hythe District Council (FHDC).
Such was the nature of the graffiti, that officers from the council removed it within an hour of it being reported to them.
It is not known what the graffiti said, with the authority confirming they would "rather not disclose the message written".
However, police confirmed the nature of the message today, after announcing that Mr Morris has been charged with two counts of racially aggravated criminal damage.
He was also charged with two counts of failing to comply with a community protection notice on Tuesday.
The 38-year-old, of no fixed address, appeared at Maidstone Magistrates' Court via virtual link yesterday.
He was bailed until Wednesday December 9, when the case will be heard at Folkestone Magistrates' Court.
