Among them, a woman who was viciously attacked in her home by robbers last year had the front of her flat splattered with paint and the side wall of the Riverside Funeral Services was covered in foreign tags and a message for the authorities ‘Pigs’.
Police have issued a zero tolerance warning to the culprits. Jo Reeves, Spalding’s Community Inspector, said: “I share the dismay of the local community at this latest spate of graffiti in the town and want to make it perfectly clear anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in Spalding.
“Three juveniles have been arrested for criminal damage offences and are on police bail.
“We are working closely with our partners from a number of agencies to tackle the issue of youth nuisance, ensuring that we adopt a robust approach now evenings are getting lighter and groups spend more time out on the streets.”
