SIR, - I am writing to complain at the amount of graffiti that seems to be cropping up around St Albans and that is not being cleaned off by the district council. The cleaner-district strategy is to clean off any graffiti within five working days.

For instance there is a lot of graffiti in the alley way behind the Jolly Sailors pub among other areas which has been there for months and I'm sure I can't be the only one to have noticed and reported it but no action has been taken.

I appreciate this is not getting at the cause of the problem but if it is not cleaned off then more just gets added to it.
