A VANDAL from Beverley was ordered to clean up his own graffiti by Humberside Police.

The 21-year-old man, who has not been named by Humberside Police, sprayed paint over East Riding of Yorkshire Council signs and buildings and private house walls on Victoria Road in Beverley at the end of November.

Information from the public led police to arrest him for criminal damage on December 11, and after he admitted the 21 tags, he was dealt with by way of a Community Resolution.

The man cleaned off all the tags on Monday, December 22, and Beverley Neighbourhood Police Officer Chris Matthews said: “This kind of behaviour will not be tolerated and causing this substantial amount of criminal damage has caused distress to a lot of local residents.”
