PC Matthew Rogers said: “Graffiti such as this, causes the owners of vandalised properties inconvenience and expense to have it removed.

“If you have any information which could help to identify those responsible for this pointless act of criminal damage, I urge you to contact the police straight away.”

Contact Whitby police on 101, select option two and ask for Matthew Rogers. Alternatively, information can be emailed to matthew.rogers@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
