A graffiti attack on Guernsey's Jubilee Skatepark has been condemned by the culture and leisure minister.

Red letters were sprayed across the skate park, the Cambridge Park toilets and outside a nearby house.

Deputy Mike O'Hara, Guernsey Extreme Sport Association chairman, said: "This type of deplorable behaviour should not and cannot be tolerated.

"It is a shame that we have such irresponsible people... who wish to spoil the enjoyment for others."

The skate park officially opened in June after more than 10 years of planning.

Guernsey Police said the graffiti in Cambridge Park and on a metal plate outside a home in Beauregard Lane was sprayed sometime between 17:30 GMT on Saturday and 08:30 BST on Sunday.

Officers have urged witnesses to come forward.

The same tag was also sprayed at other locations recently.
