A GRAFFITI tagger left their mark just days after a charity shop opened its doors.

The red paint was scrawled over the front shutter at the Oxfam shop in St James’s Street, Brighton.

Oxfam opened the shop just before Christmas after taking over the vacant premises, which used to be a Starbucks cafe.

The new shutter had caused some concern that the charity had installed it as an “anti-homeless” device to stop rough sleepers.

But Oxfam said the shutter protected the front of the shop from criminal damage, as donations can often be stolen or destroyed.
