POLICE say they are on the verge of taking action almost a month after they received a video of vandals spray painting in St Albans

Herts Police were sent links to the videos by an angry resident of the Napsbury Park Estate in London Colney nearly a month ago.

It showed teenagers spraying "DXJ" graffiti tags around the estate and around St Albans.

One video also showed the youngsters spraying graffiti around Verulaminum Park and at one point a boy defecates in the River Ver while his friends laugh and film it.

The residents of the estate are certain they know who the identity of one of the people in the video is and told the police.

It followed a "DXJ" graffiti tag appearing on the whitewashed walls of the estate's six-month-old sports pavilion. Local residents could hardly believe it when one of the alleged offenders put his crimes up on the internet to show off.
