‘Atrocious’ graffiti, which has appeared on the inside walls of the Market Cross this week, will soon be removed.

A concerned reader wrote into the Observer. She said: “People have written all over the inside pillars facing South Street in black marker. It looks atrocious.”

Chichester City Council is responsible for maintaining the appearance of the Market Cross.

Clerk Rodney Duggua said: “We have noted it and we don’t want to say thank you to the people who have done it.

“It will be cleaned and we have specialists coming to do it on Monday (October 21). We can’t just use any old material to do it.
