Plan to reduce city vandalism

A WAR on grafitti has been launched on a Sheffield estate after vandals damaged artwork.

Action was taken after a specialist cleaning firm had to be brought in to remove grafitti from a fence, which runs the length of a pedestrian route between Shirehall Road and Beck Primary School.

To deter the vandals from sttriking again, residents, including children, have created hand-made bunting, containing messages urging people to protect their community.
