Yobs spray vile anti-Welsh graffiti at Gwynedd beauty spot
ANTI-WELSH graffiti left at a Gwynedd beauty spot has caused outrage amongst locals who are describing the act as a “hate crime”.
Callous vandals have spray painted “f**k Wales” and “Welsh c* *ts” on rocks on Tudweiliog beach on the Llyn Peninsula over bank holiday weekend.
Pictures of the graffiti which have been posted on Tudweiliog’ official Facebook page have caused outrage amongst locals who feel that anyone who has an issue with the area should “keep away”.
The incident is now being described as a “hate crime” by local councillor Simon Glyn who says he condemns all those involved.
Cllr Glyn said: “This incident can only be described as a hate crime and it’s something that no one wishes to see.
“I have taken steps to eradi- cate the graffiti by contacting the Maritime department in Gwynedd Council.
“They want to arrange for contractors to go to the beach to hopefully get rid of the graffiti.
“This is a very serious issue and I have also asked the Council to contact the police.
“There is no room for this type of hate in the area, especially when the vast majority of visitors who come here to enjoy our beaches respect the area and respect us as people.
“I condemn anyone who thinks that this is acceptable.
“I want to ask anyone with any information about this to contact the police or the council’s maritime department.”
The vandals have also written a mobile number and the words “pig”, “dec” and “call”.
Liz Saville Roberts MP is now calling for those involved or those with any information to come forward and own up to the “racially offensive” slurs.
She said: “There is no doubt in my mind that this graffiti both desecrates our magnificent coastline and is racially offensive.
“Those who carried out this slur should be held accountable for this crass act.
“If anyone has any information I appeal to them to come forward.”
