An anonymous serial tagger is targeting cultural landmarks across the city.

The graffiti vandal has sprayed their tag on the entrance to the 14th-century St Nicholas Church and the Grade II listed Rialto theatre, both in Dyke Road, Brighton.

The spraying spree continues across newly painted buildings and shop fronts in nearby Western Road.

It is thought the vandal has been making their mark in the city for around a year however residents have noticed the issue becoming more frequent in recent months.

“It’s incredibly frustrating and contributes to making our city look a state.”

It comes as businesses and residents launched a task force to tackle the issue.

Business and Residents Against Tagging (Brat) says it will lobby the city council and Sussex Police to take “rapid and stronger action” on the issue of tagging in Brighton and Hove.

Brighton and Hove City Council has been contacted for comment.
