Help stop graffiti in Hertford town

Hertford town centre has suffered a spate of graffiti on street furniture, walls, utility boxes and in subways over the last few weeks at various locations.

Not only does it spoil the look of the town, its removal will also be a cost to East Herts Council tax payers.

The graffiti is all of the same nature, with a tag of 'MRS 17' and the council is working with Hertford Police to find the person/s responsible.

Neighbourhood Sergeant Russell Jones said: "Graffiti, or 'tagging' as it is often known, is a crime and will not be tolerated in Hertford. Not only is it an eyesore but the material has to be removed at the taxpayers' expense."

Executive member for environment and public space Graham McAndrew said: "I'm hopeful that someone in our community will have information to help the person/s responsible for this senseless vandalism to be identified. Hertford is an attractive town where people want to live, work and visit and this anti-social behaviour is unacceptable and needs to stop."
