TWO teenage girls have been warned by Chesham police over racist graffiti.

The girls, aged 16 and 17 were reprimanded over the graffiti and a bicycle theft in Eskdale Avenue, Chesham.

The 17-year-old received a final warning.

Sgt James Ellis, of the Chiltern anti-social behaviour team, said: “There is never an excuse for any kind of vandalism and our greatest asset in tackling it is information from residents who have witnessed suspicious activity or know who could be responsible.

“The girls have been spoken to about how what they’ve done affects everyone in the community and they also know that if they do it again, we will be taking further action.”
