A bit of good news from the policing front at last. Seven teenagers were arrested after graffiti was scrawled on beach huts along Broadstairs seafront.
The youths, aged between 15 and 21, were detained late at night at Dumpton Gap by police who also seized spray-paint aerosols and other items.
Three 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old from Broadstairs and an 18-year-old from Margate were cautioned for causing criminal damage.
A sixth person, a 21-year-old from Broadstairs, was cautioned for having articles with intent to destroy/damage property. A 17-year-old Broadstairs boy was released without charge.
A police spokesman said: “We are currently running an operation in Thanet targeting criminal damage and graffiti, using various means.”
