Graffiti scrawled on the wall of the grade-I listed Harris Museum and Art Gallery has been condemned.Advertisement
Preston City Council said it had removed both of the slogans which appeared during Wednesday (22 May) evening.
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.”
