Graffiti is words or pictures drawn, painted, sprayed or scratched on to walls, fences, shutters, benches, play areas, bins and other places – even people’s homes.

It can be considered criminal damage, and you could be fined up to £5,000 and/or sent to prison for up to ten years.

In a public place

If you see graffiti in a public place or on a public building, let us know.

You’ll need to tell us where the graffiti is, what kind of surface it’s on, what it says and whether it’s offensive.

On private land or property

If the graffiti is on private land or property please report it to the owner.
