Farncombe patrols stepped up to stop bridge graffiti

Police patrols near a railway bridge in Surrey are being stepped up in an effort to stop graffiti vandals.

Officers said they had received numerous reports over the past month of obscene language being sprayed on the bridge in Farncombe.

Police said the lettering was about eight inches in height and sprayed in purple, orange and silver paint.

Hundreds of pounds of damage has been caused to the structure between Orchard Field Road and Summers Road.

Police community support officer Michael Barker said patrols in the area had been increased to try to identify the "tags" being left and to catch the people responsible.
