The graffiti that appeared on a wall of the Great Goth Shop on Flowergate

A police investigation is underway to discover the identity of a street artist who blotted his copybook by spraying grafitti on the side of a Flowergate shop.

The artwork, pictured above, is classified as criminal damage and Whitby Police’s Matthew Rogers said: “Graffiti such as this, causes the owners of vandalised properties inconvenience and expense to have it removed.”

The spray paint and artwork appeared overnight from Sunday into Monday on the Silver Street wall of the Great Goth Shop. The vandals stuck images of a highlighter and marker pen to the wall before spray painting lines above them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.

Select option 2 and ask for Matthew Rogers. Alternatively, information can be emailed to matthew.rogers@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk.

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference number 12140067934.
