VANDALS have struck again in Beaumont Park.
Local people fighting to restore the beauty of the Victorian park have been left saddened by the latest outbreak of graffiti.
Some of the graffiti, in vivid blue paint, has appeared on the park's famous rock faces.
More has been scrawled on gateposts and in the caves beneath the rocks.
Police are investigating and have a clue; the vandals daubed the names and initials Ben, Mick and DV on the rocks.
Jeanette Grady, administrator for the Friends of Beaumont Park group, said: "It is very distressing.
"We want people to be proud of what they have got on their doorstep, yet we find this sort of thing happening.
"The cliff faces are unique to this park and it is a shame to see them ruined by graffiti.
"We have liaised with Kirklees Council's environment unit and hope the paint can be removed."
Last autumn, vandals chiselled initials into the park bandstand, but were caught after an Examiner appeal for help.
