Graffiti sprayed on to a Sheffield Christian club has raised fears it has been marked as a target.

Arabic letters were painted on the cross of the sign outside the Catholic Men’s Society Club on Solly Street.

Although the daubing has now been removed - and police say they believe it was carried out by a youth ‘tagging’ - there were concerns that one of the markings looked like the letter Nun - used by militants in Iraq to brand Christian property.
