Any repeat of vandalism to Happy Valley statues could have a lasting effect on tourists to the town.

Vandals graffitied the Queen Victoria statue and the Alice in Wonderland seat and mushrooms using white paint between Sunday, December 10 and Monday, December 11, 2017.

The paint has since been cleaned up but Llandudno Town councillor Ian Turner said it was "irresponsible" and "mindless" vandalism.

Cllr Turner said: "It is important when visitors come to town that they see these particular items in pristine condition.

"It is part of the town's history and must be maintained and kept in good condition."

The Alice in Wonderland sculptures and statues around town make are a part of a trail which has been very popular with tourists, particularly the Japanese, and cllr Turner said it is important to keep them all in good condition.

He said: "We are trying to attract more people to the area and we want to be able to use this (the Alice in Wonderland trail) as part of the attraction."

He said this kind of thing has happened before with the Queen Victoria statues head going missing for weeks before being found in the bushes in Happy Valley.

Residents raised their concerns when the incident was posted on Facebook by the North Wales Police saying it was dreadful and those involved with the vandalism needed to be caught.

Cllr Turner said: "I can't see the point. It would be nice if anyone with information would report it to police."

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact North Wales Police on 101 and quoting reference number V186880.
