Police are appealing to the public to help trace those responsible for causing graffiti damage at a popular Cromford beauty spot.

Officers from the Matlock Bath, Cromford and Bonsall Safer Neighbourhood Team were contacted by a member of the public after vandals sprayed tags and offensive language on Black Rocks, Cromford.

PCSO Brian Pemberton from the area’s Safer Neighbourhood team said: “We are appealing to the public in the hope that someone may know who is responsible for this damage. Black Rocks is a popular beauty spot and yet it is being let down by mindless vandals spraying graffiti.

“This is an ongoing issue and is turning an otherwise beautiful and picturesque area of the Derbyshire Dales into somewhere offensive for people to visit.

“I would encourage anyone who knows of those responsible, or have witnessed damage taking place, to get in touch so that we can bring those responsible to justice.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PCSO Brian Pemberton on 101 or by sending him a message online using the Contact Us section of the website: www.derbyshire.police.uk/Contact-Us
