Giant printing machine foils the vandals

Many of the biggest eyesores in Brighton and Hove have been covered by large, colourful images of classic paintings.

They have proved a huge hit as both a deterrent for vandals and an attraction for shoppers.

Matt Eastel, part of the environmental improvement team at Brighton and Hove City Council, said: "Our primary objective was to cover the boarded-up areas with an anti-graffiti solution so that it would be easy to clean should it be vandalised again.

"The project has been and continues to be a complete success."
