A shelter covered in graffiti in Sutton on Sea is set to be revived ready for the busy summer season ahead.

The run-down look of the shelter, which is situated on the central promenade in the town, was questioned by Coun Ian Wild who contacted East Lindsey District Council to take action before the season started and holidaymakers start arriving.

He felt it was hardly the best way to promote this part of the Lincolnshire Coast.

Portfolio holder for the Environment, Coun Steve O’Dare, said: “It is totally unacceptable that people blight our communities with graffiti.

“It detracts from our towns and villages, is completely anti-social and costs council taxpayers to remove.

“Unfortunately, in this case, due to the materials that this bus shelter is made from, it is not possible for the graffiti to be removed using cleaning alone.”

Coun O’Dare added: “Therefore, it has been included in our programme of foreshore decoration works and will be re-painted prior to the start of the main holiday season.”
