Staff help big station clean-up

 

A clean-up operation around Bristol's Temple Meads railway station has seen 36 tonnes of rubbish cleared and 285 pieces of graffiti removed.

 

More than 50 staff from Network Rail took part in the spring clean around the station on Monday.

 

Tracks and buildings in the Temple Meads area are now a "zero-tolerance" zone in an attempt to cut vandalism.

 

Network Rail says it will work closely with British Transport Police and Bristol City Council to enforce this.

 

Robbie Burns, Network Rail's Western Route Director, said: "We are determined to tackle graffiti and vandalism on the railway and make sure people know this will not be tolerated.

 

"Any help that members of the public can give us in catching those responsible is welcomed and we urge anyone with information to call the British Transport Police."

VANDALS CAUSING MORE DAMAGE EVERY YEAR

Next Story | Previous Story | Back to list

 

11:00 - 11 March 2006

Vandalism hit record levels across the Bristol region last year, according to new Home Office figures. Avon and Somerset Police recorded 31,642 acts of criminal damage in 2004/05 - a six per cent increase on the previous year's figure of 29,949 offences.

 

More than 5,212 extra offences were committed last year compared to three years ago. The number of acts of criminal damage has jumped by 20 per cent since 2002/03.

 

The statistics were revealed to MPs in a parliamentary written answer by Home Office minister Hazel Blears.

 

Avon and Somerset Police spokeswoman Elaine Parr said: "We can't put our finger on one reason why this has gone up by a small percentage year on year. There are a lot of different communities across the force area and we couldn't put it down to one thing. The same trend is being seen across the country."

 

The increase in cases comes a month after Tony Blair launched his "Respect Action Plan". This gives police increased powers to deal with anti-social behaviour in the form of on-the-spot fines, parenting and dispersal orders and the new House Closure Power.

 

Earlier this year, the Government published proposed legal reforms which would see offenders who plead guilty to causing criminal damage being punished without going to court.

 

Prosecutors, along with police, could decide punishments for offences instead of magistrates, with shoplifting and theft also covered by the new powers.

 

The reforms, drawn up by Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer and Solicitor General Mike O'Brien, are aimed at cutting magistrates' court cases by half.

 

Nationally, acts of criminal damage soared from 1,109,370 in 2002/03 to 1,185,388 in 2004/05. The figures showed that fewer vandalism offences were recorded in South Yorkshire (23,262) and Gloucestershire (10,802) than in Avon and Somerset last year. But more criminal damaged was caused in Nottinghamshire (29,022) and West Yorkshire (63,666).
