New graffiti wall at north Devon skate park

A designated graffiti wall has been created alongside a skate park in north Devon to help prevent other vandalism.

The wall, at the park in Bideford, has been built using £3,100 in grants from Torridge District Council.

It is hoped the specially-built wall will prevent illegal graffiti in other parts of the town.

Councillor Hugo Barton, chairman of the planning committee, said the council thought the wall was an "attractive and positive creation".

Organisers of the scheme said there were some rules for the wall's use, including not putting up offensive material.

Police said they would contact organisers to have anything offensive removed quickly if necessary.
