A ROBERT Buckland election poster has been targeted by vandals.

Days after the first letter of his surname was changed to produce a profanity, the poster near the Mannington roundabout has been scrawled with graffiti.

The message is unclear but it mentions the NHS and Boris Johnson.

It comes only two days ahead of the general election and on a day when Mr Buckland was forced to defend the prime minister over his handling of the NHS row over a young boy left waiting on the floor of a Leeds hospital for treatment.
