A GRAFFITI tag has caused anger after being daubed on a popular north Belfast beauty spot.

The pink writing appears to say 'Dead NBH' and was scrawled at the scenic Cave Hill which overlooks the city.

Andrea McKernon, who runs hill-walking group Belfast Dynamos, hit out at the "unsightly" graffiti and branded it a "very poor Bansky".

"Mr or Mrs Dead has been daubing his name across the Antrim Road area in the Waterworks Park and has now moved onto the Cave Hill," she said.

"With such a proliferation of this graffiti, I would hope Belfast City Council will put extra resources into catching this 'Dead' character.

"It's so unsightly, and a big disappointment to see it when there are so many visitors enjoying the lovely autumn colours and still great numbers of foreign visitors up on the hill."
