SPRAY painters have been out defacing road signs again this week.
Last month the slogan “UK Sucks” - with various spellings of “sucks” – was unmissable on road signs and buildings from Lanark right to Douglas road end.
South Lanarkshire Council cleaned off all the slogans, in red or silver paint, but yesterday morning the paint was back. The slogan had been sprayed between Douglas road end and Rigside, and on Hyndford Bridge itself.
Today (Wednesday) the council was unable to give a cost for the original clean up, or of the next clean up which will be needed now; but whoever did the spraying, the cost of removing the graffiti will be met by the taxpayers.
