This is on the wall at the point where the cycle path goes under the bypass.

Layers of graffiti were recently cleaned off. Yesterday, I noticed that the above image had been painted on, of a white hand clutching a black scorpion.

This should be cleaned off because it's graffiti/vandalism, and the symbolism seems racist to me.

Removing the layers of bright graffiti has left a blank canvas for the person who painted this.
