Fair cop: “Woman, 53” political graffiti verdict

In the early hours of the Wednesday before the general election, a woman of 53 walked around Hastings writing political messages across the town using a set of wipe-clean blackboard pens. Within a relatively short period of time she had ‘chalked up’ 50 messages, before a passer-by spotted her writing on the shiny tiled walls of the Jerwood Gallery and reported her to the police. She was arrested whilst she was contemplating writing on the pub blackboards outside the London Trader. HOT’s Erica Smith went to court to find out more.

HOT’s Erica Smith caught up with him just before Coastal Currents to find out about his latest venture re-decorating the Union Bar this Friday – and to learn about his spray-can happy past.
