THE names of Class A drugs were daubed over signposts in Leominster.

Walkers on a footpath near the town's railway station were pointed towards various illegal substances including "weed, crack, crystal meth and smack".

The Hereford Times contacted Leominster Town Council and arrangements were made for the post to be painted over.

Cllr Denise Kerwood, who runs the town council's footpaths working group, said: "Most probably the graffiti is a thoughtless prank.

"I don’t believe Leominster has a greater issue with drug abuse than any other equivalent town. I am also aware that our local community police officers patrol regularly and liaise with individuals involved,"
