Graffiti tags have appeared across parts of the Isle of Wight overnight, with Fairlee Road, Wootton and Fishbourne affected.

Bus stops, walls, fences and signs have been daubed with a star shape with the number 4.

Next to that is the phrase, 22 Crew.  

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary said the matter has not been reported.

In a joint statement, Island Roads and the Isle of Wight Council have confirmed they are aware of the graffiti and are deciding their next move.

A spokesperson said: "We are currently assessing the extent of the damage and the type of clean-up required for each site so we can remove the graffiti as swiftly as possible."

The County Press has contacted Southern Vectis for a comment.
