Last night someone defaced julians painting in the market tower,it was crude and childish(so it can only have been one of our younger generation).Whatever you may think of the painting itself it is a shame that it has been scribbled on with such obsenities and self indulgent bilge about their weed consumption ..most graffiti in lewes is witty,funny or clever like the graffiti grammerists on the underpass to the rise farm,but this is just mindless drivel.
