Police have arrested 7 local teenagers in connection with a spate of graffiti in the Westbury on Trym and Henleaze areas.
Their work seems to have been centred around the tag “9-11 inside job” which has appeared on walls, pavements and exchange boxes for public phones. The repair bill for their work runs into thousands of pounds.
The arrests followed a member of the public who saw the youths committing an act of vandalism and photographed them. The police then followed up the evidence and took action. A combination of cautions and final warnings have been given to the 7 and, so far, no further graffiti has appeared in the area.
Surprised there were seven of them at it, though it was pretty comprehensively sprayed everywhere for a while, and it wasn’t really a tag they were spraying, more of a statement, but still, may put an end to this bit of graf for a while. Can’t say as i’ll miss it to be honest…
