One reader feels the council aren’t doing enough to tackle graffiti. Do you agree?

You report that the city council will remove graffiti that is neither racist nor offensive on a council building ‘within ten working days’ (‘Graffiti on sea blights Porty, but who leads clean-up’, News, 19 February).

If ‘council building’ includes council-owned equipment like litter bins and control cabinets, then not in our area. There is such graffiti in Longstone that was reported nearly a year ago. I am informed that it will not be removed. There is also such graffiti on CEC bins and equipment on Princes Street!
