Vandals have defaced a Hitchin sign and altered the wording to show a four-letter word.

The ‘Welcome to Hitchin – Historic Market town’ sign on the outskirts of the town in Bedford Road near to the Priory School has been vandalised.

Culprits spray-painted over the wording to the ‘chin’ part of Hitchin and scrawled the letter ‘s’ before the ‘Hit’ part of the name.

A 16-year-old pupil at the nearby school told the Comet: “I find it completely disgusting this is happening in our town.

“I have lived here all my life and I love it to bits.
