Graffiti blights Princes Street - your views online

The problem has escalated in recent weeks, mainly on boarded-up shops from the former Jenners along to the Woollen Mill at the West End.

David Carnegie: You know what makes Edinburgh a mess? Litter, potholes and plastic bollards everywhere.

Anne Harris: Senseless graffiti is everywhere in Edinburgh and now even in Princes Street, which is maybe why finally it’s getting coverage. There needs to be a zero tolerance approach, and perpetrators when caught should have to clean it off.

Tim Wight: I totally agree. Petty crime is a blight. It degrades everyone’s quality of life.

Alex Monaghan: I thought we had cameras everywhere. If so, why do vandals have the time to do their thing without being caught?

Paul Inglis: We may have cameras but do we have enough CCTV operators watching the cameras or enough police officers on duty to apprehend offenders?

Callum Alexaner Wright: There is graffiti up on Calton Hill too. There is no sense of care for the place where we live, with litter everywhere. I see some good people go out........
