List of Brighton bus shelters targeted by graffiti vandals Brighton News

A HERITAGE company called for more action to fight graffiti, as bus shelters in the city center have repeatedly been the target of vandals.

Photos show the bus shelters listed outside the Royal Pavilion in the Old Steine ​​in Brighton covered with new graffiti labels on the windows.

Writing on Twitter, the Brighton Society said city council was “losing the battle for heritage protection” and called on the public to help catch the vandals in the act.

Sussex Police said photos of the new graffiti tags had been “forwarded to the relevant team”.

The Brighton Society, which monitors graffiti cases in the city, said the tagging had accelerated during the coronavirus lockdown and called the level of vandalism “appalling”.

Last year, the group photographed graffiti all over the city, including bus shelters in the Old Steine, and on the walls of Brighton Dome.

Brighton and Hove City Council is responsible for removing graffiti if it is offensive or on public property.

Environmental law enforcement officers can issue fixed penalty notices of £ 150 if graffiti vandals are caught, and a graffiti hotline has also been set up by the board last year.

Residents can call 01273 295063 to report graffiti taggers in action to increase the chances of officers catching them.
