Memorial benches have been covered in graffiti at a Hereford park over the weekend. Aylestone Park posted the following on Facebook this morning.

“It is with great sadness that we find seven of our benches spoilt by graffiti this morning. We are speaking to local organisations in an effort to find the culprit and explain the heartache that this has brought to so many families. APA will be restoring the benches to their original beauty in the near future, in the meantime please PM this page should you have any information regarding the perpetrator.”
