The response from councils:

Out of 381 councils that were surveyed for information 200 councils provided the number of graffiti incidents, 113 councils provided the amount spent on graffiti removal. 32 councils do not record the number of graffiti incidents and 38 councils do not record the cost to remove graffiti.
115 councils include graffiti as a part of their overall street cleaning service/contract and a result cannot extract either the graffiti incidents or costs, or both. At the time of publication 107 councils are yet to provide a response.
