Police in Bristol are inviting members of the public to try their hand at Graffiti. Officers have set aside a wall in Nelson Street for people to have a go at some street art.

However they are reminding everyone that they must have permission to paint on buildings otherwise it's against the law. The See No Evil street art project is the largest in Europe.
