HUMBERSIDE POLICE OFFICERS are appealing for information following a spate of graffiti incidents in the Withernsea area were purple coloured pig skin dye has been used.
The pig skin dye comes in a spray canister and has been used to spray lamp posts in Elstronwick and vehicles and buildings in the Ottringham area.
The paint itself is very difficult to remove if it makes contact with skin and can take days if not months to wash off.
Officers are urging the public to report any information about who may be responsible and report anyone with purple dye on their skin as they may be involved.
Anyone with information should contact Humberside Police on 0845 60 60 111 quoting crime reference 1846742 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
