Extra CCTV needed to combat graffiti vandals
4:00pm Tuesday 23rd October 2012 in News
EXTRA CCTV cameras are set to be installed at a park plagued by graffiti vandals.
It comes after the yobs left their tags all over King George’s Playing Fields, Rayleigh, leaving the council to clear them up.
They were scrawled across the skatepark, benches, and play equipment last weekend and had to be removed.
Town councillor Dave Sperring said: “We are doing all we can to keep it clean. You might think to put extra cameras in isn’t cost effective because it only costs about £20 to take graffiti off. But if it keeps going on it’s a repetitive cost .”
They are now looking into what would be the best type of cameras to complement those they already have in the park.
