"Unfortunately, we do get a certain amount of graffiti within our play parks and anything considered to be offensive is cleaned off straightaway. The play areas are checked regularly by inspectors who carry graffiti cleaner with them and if appropriate any graffiti will be cleaned off at their inspections.

"Any incidences of graffiti or vandalism can be reported through the council’s website and the council has regular community meetings with the police where these reports are passed on.”
