MEET Matthew Kindersley, one of London’s tearaway teenage taggers’ responsible for a wave of graffiti vandalism.
He has been slapped with a night-time curfew for the next three months—including Christmas and New Year—after being caught daubing his Dest’ tag on railway property.
Kindersley admitted two charges of criminal damage and a further 22 incidents to be taken into consideration when he ended up before Westminster magistrates.
“His prolific tagging escapades caused extensive damage to trains and railway property,” said Det Sgt Pete Thrush from the Transport Police special graffiti unit.
