Obscene graffiti is removed from Calne

This Is Wiltshire: Obscene graffiti is removed from Calne Obscene graffiti is removed from Calne

A piece of graffiti containing explicit words has been removed from a wall in King Edward Close, Calne, after police spoke to the owner.

Stockley resident Sue Baker complained to Calne Town Council and Wiltshire Council after walking past the wall on Friday, July 11.

The 56-year-old was worried about local children seeing the words and asked them to remove it, but was told it was the owner’s responsibility to do this.

She said: “What’s really annoying is the fact that the council don’t want anything to do with it. Perhaps the judges of Calne in Bloom would like a photo of it. They obviously didn’t show them that part of Calne.”

The words were whitewashed over at the weekend after Calne PCSO Mark Cook went to speak to the owner of the wall.

The Calne in Bloom route is the only area that Calne Town Council care about, they are still only interested in achieving a Gold in the Britain in Bloom competition. Outside of that area it is of little importance.

Wow. Top quality journalism here. I can see why they didn't put a name to it.
Someone writes offensive word on some ones wall.
Nosey do-gooder from a completely different area happened to walk past. And for some reason we require knowing her age.
Council wont remove it.
Wall owner beaten by the police until he whitewashes the wall, with PCSO Cook (52 years old ish) and his truncheon (2 years old ish) stood near ready to flog the poor oppressed Calneite, should the brush stop moving upon the wall (34 years old ish)

Actually, I quite like this reporting lark.
