Plea for community to help tackle vandalism and graffiti
January 24, 2019
Following another spate of vandalism in Cramlington at the weekend, Cramlington Town Council is asking the local community for their help in tackling the issue.
They are appealing for anyone who witnesses graffiti and vandalism being carried out to call the police immediately so that the case can be fully investigated.
Town Council chairman John Collins said ‘If you see something happening please ring the police straight away. We need the local community to help tackle this issue. Removing graffiti around the town costs a significant amount each year, and this is money that could be spent on making improvements to other services.’
The latest incidents include graffiti on road signs, litter bins, phone boxes, underpasses and bus shelters.
Most of the graffiti has already been removed but rectifying the vandalism to bus shelters is a complex and expensive issue and the Council is looking at the range of options available to them.
