A SPATE of grafitti in Congresbury has ruined murals produced by youngsters in the village.

The murals, created as part of the Congresbury Youth Partnership's summer schemes, have been in place for a number of years and this is the first time they have been touched.

Ian Sheppard, of Congresbury Youth Partnership, said: "We also painted the inside of a bus shelter in the village, which has been defaced, along with the changing rooms at the football club."

One of the tags that has been sprayed, BLNC 4LYF, has also been seen around Churchill Community School and leisure centre, and also in Banwell.
