A SPRAY painted image of two ‘crack heads’ on a Weston seafront location has stirred up many opinions from our online readers this week.

Our reporter spotted the latest graffiti image to appear in the resort on a wall along the walkway at the base of the former Royal Pier Hotel, in Birnbeck Road.

The image depicts two men, with missing teeth, smiling above the words ‘welcome to Weston’.

The picture got mixed comments on our Facebook page, as some people saw the image as a reflection of Weston, with the two men being rehab users.

One online reader, Jim Socialkaos, said it looked like two ‘crack heads’ and Adam Porter said the pair looked like ‘hillbillies’.

Maxine Collins said if it was on the side of her business she would paint over it and Ginny Gould said they looked like ‘normal happy tourists’ to her.

Ryan Pearson said: “If the people enquiring as to what it means are actually being genuine then you have my pity and my suggestion to open your eyes.”
