Statement re graffiti in Kingston Town Centre

The council was made aware of racist and offensive graffiti in Kingston town centre overnight. Our neighbourhood rangers, working with the Bentall and Eden Walk shopping centres as well as Kingston First, acted quickly and have removed it all.

These types of crimes will not be tolerated in our borough. Kingston Police have been informed and are investigating, including looking at CCTV evidence to try and catch those responsible.
