POLICE are searching for vandals called Pinky and Chewy who have sprayed graffiti across Worle.

Officers have been visiting schools and colleges across the area to try to track down those responsible for causing damage to property around Wansbrough Road and Becket Road.

They want to identify the people behind the Pinky, Chewy and TM images, as well as the profile of a face with a large chin. They believe TM stands for ‘Time Matters’.

Three villagers reported finding it on their property and other tags are on a bus shelter, electricity sub station and other surfaces in the area. They all appeared overnight on October 17.

North Worle beat officer PC Jim Murray has visited all three Weston College campuses, Bridgwater College, Priory Community School, Worle Community School and Churchill Academy to speak to teachers to try to identify who is responsible.

He said: “Although the graffiti isn’t offensive as such, it doesn’t mean it’s not an eyesore for the people who live and work in the area.

“Some of these tags are on people’s property, some are on bus shelters.

“They look a mess and send out the wrong message about the area, often making people feel less safe.

“All 14 tags we have found bear the same names and we’re confident the offenders responsible are local.

“People must have some idea who Pinky and Chewy are, so we would love them to come forward and tell us so we can hopefully put a stop to it.”

Anyone with information about the graffiti can call PC Murray on the police non-emergency number 101.
