Help is needed tracking down graffiti artists defacing property across Penwortham.

Police and offices from South Ribble Council are now asking for people to help them stop the attacks on items such as sign posts and utilities boxes.

Speaking at an online Police and Community Together (PACT), Rebecca Heap from South Ribble Council said: “We are seeing these tags on graffiti appearing around Penwortham at the moment.

“Please let us know via inbox if you have any information as to who might be carrying out this vandalism.”

Local authorities have the power to hand out on-the-spot fines of up to £80 for anyone found responsible for carrying out graffiti.
