Stella Creasy has appealed for witnesses after her constituency office in north-east London was hit by vandals.

Walthamstow Labor MP posted a picture on social media showing several cracks on the front door of her office. The incident is believed to have taken place between 5.30pm and 8pm on Tuesday at Orford Road. Metropolitan Police said officers are investigating the case. No arrests have been made yet.

Creasy wrote on Twitter: “Walthamstow, if you were on Orford Road near my office between 5.30pm and 8pm today, come forward to help us catch the cowards who attacked my office.

“Please share to help find out who did this – you can also provide anonymous information about crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.”

The capital police were contacted for a comment.

Earlier Tuesday, Creasy told the Guardian that she would table an amendment to the forthcoming UK Bill of Rights. to give women the basic right to abortion.

She said she would expect MPs to be given a free vote on the issue, as a matter of conscience, and the amendment would be tabled when the bill is announced at second reading.

“Most women in the UK are not aware that abortion is not a right, but there is only one law that provides exemption from prosecution in certain circumstances,” she said.

“What the United States is teaching us is that we can not be complacent about enshrining these rights in law.”

Waltham Forest Metropolitan Police Service tweeted: “Anyone with info, please call the Met at 101 and quote ref 7222 / 28jun.”
