A city council spokeswoman said: “We were made aware of the graffiti last night and had it removed first thing this morning.

“Fortunately, in this instance, it was made with a temporary chalk substance and was fairly easily removed.

“However any markings on the Grade I listed Harris building are wholly unacceptable – Prestonians take great pride in this building and it deserves to be treated with the respect it deserves.”
