Aintree Labour Action Team get obscene graffiti cleaned in Aintr

Aintree Labour Action Team leader Marion Atkinson and Molyneux Ward Labour councillor Tony Carr with Aintree mum Gillian Gill who reported the obscene graffiti to the Labour team


Aintree Labour Action Team took swift action to clear an obscene piece of vandalism from a busy Aintree Village street this week.

Aintree Labour Action Team leader and Aintree resident Marion Atkinson took action after she was alerted to the obscene graffiti on a green box utilities on Monmouth Drive and Wango Lane.

The Labour candidate for Molyneux Ward at May's local elections  said she received a call about the graffiti from another Aintree mum Gillian Gill.

Marion said: "What was drawn on the green box really was disgusting and to make it worse it was reported by a local mum who had seen it with her young daughter.

"Graffiti of any kind is unacceptable, but we really do need to take action to deter people from doing anything like this again.

"I have a daughter and I really wouldn't have liked her to have seen what was drawn there."

Marion now fears that we will see an increase of vandalism throughout Aintree, Melling and Maghull after the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats voted to axe the Sefton Graffiti Squad.

Marion said: "It is very concerning that this squad has been axed. This team was always very quick to respond to calls and quick to remove instances of vandalism and graffiti.

"But now they have been axed we will see graffiti build up over time and as is always the case, graffiti breeds graffiti.

"In the latest case of the vandalism on Monmouth Drive and Wango Lane, it was on United Utilities property, so they were able to quickly deal with the problem. And I thank them for their very quick response.

"But the graffiti will not always be the responsibility of other agencies to deal with and we will end up with our community becoming an eyesore due to undealt with graffiti and vandalism."
