Breaking News: Totterdown House Paint War

The stories that probably happen in Bristol:

Residents in Totterdown have become embroiled in a dispute after a householder removed colourful paint from the facade of his home.

The area is a famous Bristol landmark featuring rows of individually painted houses set in rows across the city’s skyline.

A local resident who did not wish to be named said: “It’s a disgrace that someone has moved into our community and immediately tried to make their mark by having the front of their home a neutral colour. We don’t want beige here.”

The row spilled onto Facebook page Totterdown Connect, with some backing the new resident.

Samantha Jones-Elliot wrote: ‘I think he has a right to have his home the colour he wishes. He’s paid for it after all.’

But others were not in agreement, with Jonathan Myers-Jameson saying it was ‘disgraceful’ that outsiders moving into the Bristol area were not prepared to keep the glowing pink bricks.

Officers from Avon and Somerset attended the address after local people armed with pink paint and brushes were discovered on the property at midnight yesterday.

A spokesperson for the police said: ‘We urge residents not to take the law into their own hands and paint other people’s homes. You can report your neighbours anonymously to Crimestoppers.”
