Summer brings out the worst in a few people

It's summer and lots more people are outside enjoying the best that our town has to offer. However there appears to be a small minority of people who think they can cause damage and get away with it.

Two recent examples are obscene graffiti on children's play equipment in Priory Park and throwing the bin from the green under Newport Bridge into the river (as you can see in the photo).

In both cases, Launceston Town Council have been quick to act and they deserve our thanks, but abuse of local facilities has to be paid for and this means more money on the council tax or manoey taken away from other front line services.
