Racist graffiti removed from railway bridge
MESSAGES of hate that had been daubed onto a village railway bridge have been removed.
Workers from Network Rail painted over the vile racist graffiti which had been scrawled onto the bridge, in Bulls Lane, Welham Green.
As reported in the Welwyn Hatfield Times on April 21, hate-filled yobs whitewashed a swastika onto a brickwork wall underneath the structure.
The shameless ‘street artists’ also daubed the words KKK, NF and BNP onto the wall, in a clear reference to the far right Ku Klux Klan, National Front and British National Party respectively.
After spotting that the graffiti had been removed, one Welham Green resident said: “I’m glad the graffiti has now gone.

“There is no place for racism of this kind in 21st century Britain.
“I hope the police catch the scumbags that did it.”
