Teenagers clean their graffiti off bus shelter

Two teenaged boys caught spraying graffiti on the town's bus shelters by Boston Borough Council's CCTV cameras paid their penance on Sunday (November 17) when they cleaned their handiwork away.

The lads worked under the supervision of Boston Borough Council's anti-social behaviour case worker Adam Eden and PCSO Zameer Hussain who made sure they scrubbed away all the red paint they had applied to the Perspex bus shelters. For good measure they also cleaned away some other graffiti.

Adam said: "They worked hard for about two hours. They said the sooner they got it finished, the sooner they could go. They were regretful about what they had done and said they would not do it again."

The boys were spotted by CCTV and caught at the scene by police.

Cllr Stephen Woodliffe, portfolio holder for community safety, said: "The bus station is not off-limits so far as our CCTV cameras are concerned. We can clearly view the entire area, including activities inside the shelters."
