Anti-government graffiti has appeared in Hatfield – targeting the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The message written on the Alban Way – a cycle route between St Albans and Hatfield – near the Galleria follows other acts of vandalism that have appeared in Hertfordshire.

Hitchin’s PIP Consultation Centre was targeted with a red painted ‘Go to work, catch the virus, protect the billionaires’ mocking the Government’s slogan of ‘Stay alert, control the virus, save lives’.
