Should members of the public see graffiti or damage to bus shelters it can reported directly to Merseytravel on 0151 236 7676 to avoid delay in getting the shelter repaired. Just give the shelter location and the reference number on the shelter.

Anyone who witnessed either of these incidents of criminal damage or who has information on who the ‘tag’ on the shelters belongs to, should report it on Facebook via MERSEYSIDE POLICE CC or pass what they know via CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 so that we can investigate.
