Police are appealing for information leading to the identity of a graffiti vandal who has caused �1million worth of damage across three boroughs.

The ‘ZERX’ tag has appeared on properties and railway sidings in Brent, Harrow and Westminster, resulting in the three councils and Transport for London with hefty cleaning bills.

The tag also appeared on the side of the Admiralty building in Whitehall following the student demonstrations in Central London in December last year.

Officers investigating the vandalism are appealing for anyone who knows who the author is to come forward.
