Tony Ford, the Chairman of the Friends of St Annes Station, discovered the vandalism and reported it to police.

"We want the place to look good," he said, "we paint things, manage the area, cut the grass.

"We were there watering plants at 8:30pm, so it has happened after that.

"It is frustrating and really quite galling actually when this happens."

Tomorrow afternoon, Friday July 26, St Annes Station is due to play host to the "Music Train", with performances from local crooner Tony Benedict.

In response to the vandals, British Transport Police said they will be sending patrols to visit the station in the evenings from now on.
