THE reason the mural was gone over ("Mural daubed with gun crime messages," September 26) was because of the racist graffiti that had been tagged over it and little kids that had scrawled over it with markers.

There was also a big chrome National Front sign.

This is not vandalism. This wall has stopped real vandalism in St Neots by a great deal.
