Council chairman condemns graffiti after vandals strike Fenland village for second time

THE Chairman of Fenland District Council has condemned a spate of criminal damage which has left his village covered in graffiti for the second time in a month.

The offenders struck in Gorefield between 6pm on Tuesday, May 24 and noon on Wednesday, May 25. Graffiti was spray-painted on the pavilion and a series of road signs in the village.

Police have been carrying out house to house enquiries and believe that the offenders may be local.

PCSO Martin Bogunovic said: “This kind of criminal damage effects the quality of life for residents and we are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

“We believe the offenders may be local, therefore someone must know who these offenders are.

“We are carrying out patrols in the area and anyone caught committing this kind of damage could face a fine or up to three months in prison.”

Anyone with information should contact PCSO Bogunovic at Wisbech Police Station on 0345 456 456 4.
