“The ‘SOK’ tag is of particular interest to us, as it appears in many places, a lot of them being, on the face of it, pretty inaccessible.
“Graffiti writers make their mark on their territory by tagging and they love to go one better than their rivals.“The ‘SOK’ graffiti writer is pushing the boundaries in looking to tag in areas that others cannot reach.“And while we will always look to encourage those who have artistic talent to use that talent appropriately, this is an example of mindless scrawling on public buildings which will cost a lot of public money to remove and clean up."
