A Tiverton street artist has painted portraits of police officers on a wall near Tiverton Police Station, much to the annoyance of Matthew Elliott of the Taxpayers’ Alliance.
“It’s a costly farce and insulting to both local police officers and youths,” he huffed to the Mid-Devon Star.
“To waste taxpayers’ money on such a gimmick instead of using it to fight crime is a disgrace.”
But apparently it’s a part of a long-term project between the police and young people, and Cllr Des Hannon told the paper: “We’ve chosen to do something fun and we’ve given young Tiverton talent a chance.”
