Officers believe the incident happened between 5.30pm on Saturday (November 16) and 10am this morning, which is when the police were called.

Posting on Twitter, the defiant Labour candidate said it was "hard" to take in seeing the vandalism this morning, but that it "takes more than this" to "shut us" up.

She said: "This is the reason those that love me didn’t want me to do it. It is hard, yet I can’t stand by and see Ashfield get left behind.

"Off out again this morning to talk about difference a Labour government can make and offer hope. Takes more than this to shut us Ashfield women up."
