Graffiti vandalism is not just an unsightly mess.

It is against the law, a cost to you and your neighbours, and a drain on the services provided by South Tyneside Council and South Tyneside Homes.

You can report graffiti anonymously online. 

Please be as descriptive as possible about the graffiti and where it is.
