A number of businesses in Barrow's town centre are being helped in having graffiti on their premises removed.

The work is being organised by Barrow BID, with the group using the services of Grimefighters UK, a company also based in the region.

On Tuesday, cleaners were out in force to remove the artwork on the exterior of businesses who had sought out assistance.

This comes after the news last month that concerns had been raised about the cleanliness of the town centre.
