It addition to litter, there is an ongoing problem with graffiti, which affects the ward and indeed many parts of Calderdale to an even greater degree. Please do report any graffiti that you see to the council and the graffiti removal team are usually able to clear it off within the following few days. If residents view anyone creating graffiti they should not approach the person but should report it to Yorkshire and Humberside Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 so that the culprits can be apprehended and dealt with legally. It should also be reported to the graffiti removal helpline on 01422 288002. The photographs show just a handful of the areas affected presently with graffiti in the Hipperholme and Lightcliffe ward.
