Horncastle Police are determined to identify vandals responsible for graffiti which has appeared next to one of the town’s busiest roads.
The bold, white graffiti is on a section of a wall adjoining the Jubilee Way bypass.
It is daubed on three sections of the wall and is three or four feet high.
Police say it appeared overnight and have warned the offenders could be charged with criminal damage.
PCSO Nigel Wass said: “It’s not the sort of thing that you want to see anywhere, never mind on a busy main road.
“Someone must have seen who is responsible - or recognise the work.”
“It is not pleasant and in cases like this it is very difficult to remove.
“Whoever is responsible has committed an offence.”
There was an outbreak of graffiti in the town centre towards the end of last year.
It appeared on the walls of several businesses, including the Post Office.
However, PCSO Wass said the new graffiti did not appear to be the work of the same person.
