In a statement shared to his Facebook page, the MP for Darlington branded the culprit a ‘disgrace’ and a ‘scumbag’.

Peter Gibson MP said: “***Disgusted***

“Sadly my team have arrived at work this morning to do as they do every day – help the people of Darlington with problems but instead of being able to get on with their work they are having to clean up the excrement that some scumbag has posted through our letterbox. What an appalling scum bag thing to do.

“Disagree with me by all means, challenge my views but when you resort to this behaviour you illustrate what a disgrace you are.

“Rest assured the police have been informed and CCTV footage has been passed to Police.”
