"A train in Huddersfield railway station was attacked by graffiti artists as part of a co-ordinated campaign across Yorkshire, police believe. A coach at the station was daubed with the word 'Nayzel' in letters 3ft high and 10ft long.
The incident is one of a series of attacks on trains which took place over Christmas. They are thought to be the work of artists who got together over the Internet. Police believe artists use the railway system as a mobile exhibition of their art.
The worst incident took place at Skipton, where murals were scrawled on three trains and 14 others were daubed with paint. Other railway stations attacked on Christmas Day included Harrogate, Sheffield and Scarborough. A British Transport Police spokesman in Leeds feared that graffiti artists have set their sights on Yorkshire.
He said, 'We have never seen anything on this scale in the North before.' Apart from the incidents at Yorkshire stations Heaton depot in Newcastle was also targeted. 'The fact that incidents happened over 24 hours makes us believe it is co-ordinated, and from our past experience they are using the Internet to communicate'. 'We believe the Skipton incident was caused by a person or a crew who travelled there specifically to paint the trains', he added."
It wasn't just the North that took a slap, down in London there were loads of runners spotted on Boxing Day and the day after. Tubes by Rate, Fuel, Fig, Bozo, Spoe, Fume, Nigaz, Skola and Chang were all
seen running at some point over Christmas and on the BR's there were bucket loads from Einz, Oker, Kems, FKF, Crac, Jabs, Skola, Katch, Dest, SFW and loads more.
