Vandalism destroys artwork on Ludlow phone kiosk – I’m fuming at this attack on local street artists

Chatter across social media led me to me getting an early and nervous bus journey to town this morning. I discovered to my horror that the phone box in the Market Square painted with artwork in recent days had been crudely painted white. That act is criminal damage and a listed building offence. The K6 Kiosk is Grade II listed. This is also an attack on local artists. No application was made to Historic England for either the original artwork or its destruction. But BT have given permission for the now destroyed artwork to remain for a short period. Regardless, some mindless idiot decided to destroy it. I’m fuming.
