Should graffiti be banned? Taggers 'out of control' in Brighton

Some call it street art others call it mindless vandalism. Graffiti has always divided opinion. But businesses in Brighton and Hove say it's a blight on their city and is getting out of control.

Banks, hotels, public buildings and train stations have been targeted by so-called 'taggers'. This week, a hotel on Brighton seafront has been targeted for the third time this year.

Businesses say graffiti is costing them thousands to clean up - and more must be done to stop a recent rise.

Andy Dickenson reports and speaks to Andy Winter from the Brighton Housing Trust, Cllr Gill Mitchell and artist Daniel Doherty.
