POLICE in Oxford are asking residents for their help in combatting 'an increase in graffiti'. 

The force say they are aware of a rise in the number of incidents in Jericho and the north and west of the city.

Its appeal is the latest in a series of crackdowns on the problem, and follows a series of complaints late last year. 

In December 2017, Oxford City Council declared 'a new war' on graffiti, following a sharp rise in the number of reports.

"We need your help locating as much graffiti as possible within this area. We can then carry out any relative enquiries."
