The number of incidents of vandalism in Guernsey has dropped by 80% in four years, an environment minister said.

Tony Spruce said the fall was down to recommendations implemented in a 2009 report.

By applying anti-vandal initiatives, such as anti-stick paint, vandalism has dropped from 115 incidents in 2009 to its lowest rate of 19 in 2013.

Mr Spruce said: "Working with the community has seen a huge change in behaviour."
