Tower's graffiti is cleaned off
Glastonbury Tor
The monument was targeted last Sunday
Graffiti sprayed on to a tower on Glastonbury Tor has been removed at a cost of 2,000, owner The National Trust has said.

The southern face of St Michael's Tower was targeted after 500,000 was recently spent restoring the building.

Andrew Mayled, for the trust, said: "It is fortunate we were able to get the stone conservators in so quickly before the paint seeped into the pores."

The group Fathers 4 Justice said one of its sympathisers was responsible.

"We are grateful for the solidarity expressed by the many people who have climbed the Tor this week to express their anger over the vandalism," said Mr Mayled.
