A GRAFFITI vandal has been condemned for spraying a five-foot high slogan on the wall of a towpath bridge on the Huddersfield Narrow Canal in Greenfield.
The culprit has daubed the words ‘98% survival rate? on the brickwork.
A specialist machine will be brought in by the Canal and River Trust to remove the paint damage and other tagging.
But a spokesperson for the organisation told the Independent: “It’s really upsetting to see that somebody has done this vandalism on the canal.
“As a charity, this costs the Trust in both time and money removing this graffiti.
“It diverts us away from other works that need doing to care for this beautiful canal which is a great asset for the local community to use to go for a walk, run or cycle.
“We urge anybody to contact the local police if they see any vandalism happening again.”
