A vandalised railway bridge has been immersed in fun underwater designs painted on by volunteers.

The bridge between Bensham Lane and Gillett Road has been targeted with graffiti featuring racist, swear words and sexual images.

Now it has been transformed with whales, a yellow submarine and smiling sea life adorning the metal side panels.

It has been transformed by Thornton Heath Community Action Team led by Vân Dang who came up with the design idea.

Working throughout the Bank Holiday volunteers put the finishing touches to the design during the week.

Anti graffiti paint has been applied to keep vandalism at bay.
