CONGRESBURY youngsters got scrubbing and cleared up the mess left by inconsiderate vandals. The volunteers cleaned the murals at a bus stop in the village and another two at the King George V playing fields, off Stonewell Drive.

CONGRESBURY youngsters got scrubbing and cleared up the mess left by inconsiderate vandals.

The volunteers cleaned the murals at a bus stop in the village and another two at the King George V playing fields, off Stonewell Drive. They had been decorated by young people as part of Congresbury Youth Partnership's summer playschemes over the last four years and were damaged in September when they were sprawled with graffiti.

Youth Partnership chairman Ian Sheppard said: "The murals had gone untouched for a number of years and it was disappointing that our young people's work was damaged in this way.

"A professional artist came along to assess the damage and said it should not take too long to repair, so we got a group of children together."
