Young graffiti artists painting on a wall in the undercroft of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, South Bank. The subterranean spaces with their expanses of concrete have attracted skateboarders and graffiti artists for many years. The spray-paint 'tags' are currently tolerated here, but quickly removed if they stray beyond this area. The 2003 Anti-Social Behaviour Act introduced anti-graffiti legislation and some politicians, including the then Prime Minister Tony Blair, signed a charter stating 'Graffiti is not art, it's a crime'.
