THE GRAFFITI BUSTER: OUTRAGED MUM BUYS COUNCIL A POWER SPRAYER
The graffiti buster: Mother-of-four Jean tries out the power spray gun
Saturday October 23,2010
MOTHER-of-four Jean Chapman was outraged when vandals sprayed red paint over 40 buildings, lamp posts and benches in her local market town.
She decided to do something about it by donating £8,500 to buy a special cleaner so that council workmen could remove the graffiti.
The diesel-powered machine can blast out heated water at 200 times the pressure of a normal hose.

Businesswoman Mrs Chapman, 47, who owns a recruitment company in Sudbury, Suffolk, said: “I was driving to work when I saw all this red graffiti everywhere.
“Sudbury is a nice town and I want it kept that way. I moved my family to the area to get away from this sort of behaviour in Essex. It makes sense for the council to have its own machine to avoid having to pay contractors.”
Town clerk Sue Brotherwood said: “It is extremely public spirited of Mrs Chapman. We would not have been able to afford the kit without her help.”
