Guernsey south coast cliff face sprayed with graffiti

Post by GD on Thu 17 Mar 2011, 3:03 pm

Guernsey's environment minister has condemned the spraying of graffiti on to a 40 sq m area of cliff face on Guernsey's south coast.
Large tags and messages appeared at a vehicle turning point at Saints Bay.
It follows similar incidents on the sea wall at Pembroke and at two World War II bunkers, which were then cleaned.
Deputy Peter Sirett said: "This particular incident is probably one of the worst we've had because it's a local beauty spot that's been defaced."
He added: "It's just such a shame that youngsters who obviously have some sort of talent can't express it in some more useful way that's not going to cost the island a lot of money."
Deputy Sirett said cleaning the natural rock face would be very difficult and therefore expensive.
He warned that if those who wrote the graffiti were to be prosecuted, his department would seek to reclaim its costs from them.
Anyone with information about the incident was asked to contact Guernsey Police. (from BBC)
