The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) reported yesterday (Sept 14) that the graffiti, measuring some 3.2 metres across and nearly two metres high, had been removed by DMCR officers, with assistance from some local members of the Rak Racha community group.

The graffiti was found on rocks at Ao La, or “Lah Bay”, a popular dive area on the northeast side of the island.

DMCR officers warned against any persons carrying out similar ‘tagging” of rocks in the area.

Lock 'em up! Hope they are caught and made to pay for doing such an idiotic thing. Five years hard labour cleaning up any graffiti found around Phuket might teach them some common sense.
