HAVING noticed in several areas on Scafell Road, Moss Bank spray painted graffiti, I rang the council to report it and see if it could be removed.

I reported the three worst sites: the railway bridge, the wall around housing estate know as the Brookes, and finally the reserve post box on the bend on Washway Lane.

The reply I received beggars belief:

1 We don’t own the railway bridge

2 The wall around the estate is nothing to do with council

3 We do not own the post box.

So in reflection unless you can find something they will admit to owning you can go and whistle.
