Disappointment over graffiti on new mural

Police are investigating graffiti on new murals installed at the skate park.

Forbes Shire Council representatives have expressed their disappointment: the artwork was completed in conjunction with skate park regulars and designed to make the skate park bright and attractive.

On Monday morning, they found lewd slogans written on it. They are reviewing CCTV footage.

The vandalism has been reported to police, who advise graffiti is an offence (not to be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act).
