Graffiti vandals have attacked a Morpeth bridge.

Their scrawl was spotted on Oldgate Bridge earlier this week and was painted over by Northumberland County Council staff on Wednesday.

Morpeth Town Council Clerk Gillian Turner said: “Thankfully, this sort of thing is very unusual in Morpeth. However, every now and then something like this does happen. It’s a shame.”
