Haverhill Police are urging people to come forward with information that could help end the recent spate of graffiti tags being sprayed around the town centre.
The tag ‘BYE’ has been sprayed in numerous locations – on the side of Bilsons in Queen Square, behind the Echo office in the square, near Tesco, and on other walls along Queen Street and High Street.
“The unwanted appearance of graffiti effects the appearance of Haverhill and we would urge all businesses, parents and young people to come forward and provide us with some lines of enquiry,” said Pc Will Wright.
“The tag is with blue spray paint and looks like it says the letters BYE written into a sort of Celtic bubble, and it’s appearing all over the town.
“It diverts resources and public money away from places where it could be better used for the town, as instead it is used trying to clear unwanted graffiti damage which is an eyesore and which is costly and unsightly to everybody.
“If the budding artist wants to come forward to speak to the SNT (Haverhill Police’s Safer Neighbourhood Team) to put right his actions then I’m sure Pc Simon Bourne, who is investigating the case, will be more than happy to speak with him.”
Anyone with information can call Pc Bourne on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
The tags began springing up in Haverhill over the last few weeks but have intensified recently.
