A TYRE wall, which sparked outrage from residents after it was built, has now been defaced by vandals with a message of support for The UK Independence Party.

A graffiti message has recently been scrawled onto the tyres, urging onlookers to vote for the Eurosceptic party.

Mike Hannon, deputy leader of Warrington Borough Council, has called for action, describing the situation as an ‘embarrassment’.

He said: “Apart from the long embarrassment of these tyres, we now have political graffiti on the tyres. I would expect any political party including my own to be prosecuted.”

Chairman of UKIP James Ashington has blasted the actions of those involved.

He said: “We do not condone the defacement of public property. This is not the kind of publicity we want. We do not need to deface public property to make any political points.”

The council is currently taking legal action against the owner of the tyre wall, over claims he did not seek planning permission.

But owner, Patrick Moran, of Glazebrook Lane, is fighting the council’s demands to remove the bales of used tyres from the land near to the junction on Farrell Street and Kingsway North.

An appeal date has been set for May 21 at Warrington Magistrates Court.

A council spokesman said: “We cannot take action for graffiti and cannot clear any graffiti on private land unless it is deemed in law to be offensive.

“We are currently taking legal action for the removal of the tyre wall and will continue to take strict action where any advertisements are applied to the wall."

Well it couldn't be more of in eyesore than it already was. If I left a load of tyres on the side of a road or river embankment, I would be charged with fly tipping.

Has it been established that the owner of the tyres has not done it himself?

I think Mr Ashington is confused when he describes the tyres as being public property.

its hardly likely to be the work of ukip's election campaign, why some idiot has written it we'll never know. for another politician to say the party should be prosecuted shows such a huge lack of understanding about the law - and about actually finding the guilty individual - that they should seriously consider a career change to something like lollypop man.

No its not offensive, people put vote "their chosen part" signs on their houses all the time. Just because it doesn't coincide with your personal political views does NOT make it offensive. However I do agree this needs to be addressed. The last article regarding this tyre wall stated that WBC would be removing it on the owners behalf and charging him costs if he hasn't removed it by the stated deadline which I am 100% positive has already passed.

Makes a change from UKIP posters being defaced. Considering the concentrated effort of the political elite, BBC & the Media to blacken UKIP’s name, thoroughly sieving through their candidates and supporters, to be fair they have come up with very little. When you compare the serious crimes by LibLab Con which ended up in a jail sentence! Could you imagine what dirt they would come up with if they gave them the same concentrated attention they are currently giving UKIP.

Doesn't take any "sieving". Poor little UKIP. They want the attention but not the scrutiny.

The other parties do get as much attention - it's just that there are less a***holes standing in the other parties.

UKIP even take on, in senior positions , those who have shown themselves to be t**** when in other parties - including Neil Hamilton (UKIP Deputy Chairman) and the MEP and professional politician who is standing in the Newark by-election.

If they can't take the heat they should stay out of the kitchen. Not that UKIP males would step into a kitchen - that's women's' work

There are only bigotry things being said about UKIP, only naming calling, because no one has any tangible evidence of anything against them. The political elite are panicking because the people are wakening up and beginning to rise, apart from the likes of you, who bows to your superiors, the hierarchy in Brussels.
Decent people, whether for or against the EU take it to the ballet box, its called a democracy.
Nigel Farage has put his cards on the table, he says we will be better off leaving the EU.
Clegg has put his cards on the table, he thinks we will be better off staying in the EU.
Do you notice the other two parties …nothing but silence.
Both of them didn’t have the bottle to face Nigel in a debate. Why are they not putting their positive views forward to convince you or me why we should remain part of the EU, because they can’t!! Its an undemocratic, fraudulent, corrupt and very expensive dictatorship and you may wave your little white flag and succumb to them, but I will not!

That's a new personal best. Thanks haters, you've found your level.
Minus 13? There are times when I bake a cake, ice it with the words "Mister Popularity" and present it to myself when I get such a chorus of approval!

No its not offensive, people put vote "their chosen part" signs on their houses all the time. Just because it doesn't coincide with your personal political views does NOT make it offensive. However I do agree this needs to be addressed. The last article regarding this tyre wall stated that WBC would be removing it on the owners behalf and charging him costs if he hasn't removed it by the stated deadline which I am 100% positive has already passed.

UKIP on a BLACK wall you clearly don't get the comment!!!!!
grumpy parent you clearly have some closet race issues if all you see of the world is just the black and white. Once again I raise the point that there IS actually NOTHING offensive about the words "vote UKIP" if it were worded as such that it singled out any religion or race then your point would be just. However in the absence of any such material this is NOT racist or offensive its is just a simple piece of political graffiti.

no your right i wouldn't. good point.

And Nick, like it or not I think UKIP will do very well in euro elections, its hopefully more of a protest vote that a signal of likely intention for next years general election. If someone says this does it necessarily mean they support them? If you think you wont do well nail your colours to the mast and say so.

Now let's think. I regard UKIP as a bunch of misogynistic, racist, homophobic bigots who are immorally and dishonestly appealing to people's lower instincts and who are not fit to run a golf club never mind the country. (Presumably a golf club protected from the fracking they support and would see pushed on to the rest of us)

I would of course be delighted, what do you think. (imagine sarcasm emoticon here !)

local man - the problem with a protest vote is sometimes the undeserving recipient of that vote gets in, however whether they do well or not is a bit of a side issue. Time and those who turn out to vote will decide that. I certainly hope for the sake of the country that they do not do as well as SOME are forecasting. I believe I have already nailed my colours to the mast when I have indicated that I do not believe they deserve to do well.

I don't remember anyone being called a racist after they said ' I am concerned about 4,000 people a week coming to Briatin from the EU' it's normally after they say something racist that they get called racist

Nothing hysterical about my accusations - they are obsevations based on evidence.

The only hysteria I can see is that which has been whipped up, in some quarters by Nigel Fartrage and the other professional politicians and Roderick Spodes in UKIP - whipped up by lies, made up statistics and baseless forecasts and other proclamations.

Homophobia, misogyny etc. are not crimes of themselves but certainly some of the actions and utterances could be seen as criminal under race relation and other legislation,. It is for others to say why none have , so far, faced prosecution or civil action

I think probably every person in every society in the world has a fear of the other, a mistrust of those who are not their own kind. It's up to each of us to set this aside and see that it's irrational. Dividing the world into little conclaves of frightened people looking after what they think are their own interests is going to result in cockroaches inheriting the planet. History has taught us that in times of trouble, strange ideas and people come to the surface.
