A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "-Do you recognise the tag? Do you know who may be responsible?

"The tag on an adjoining street reads the letters 'ANON', which may suggest the budding artist/s, may wish to remain anonymous. We therefore need your help in identifying them.

"No one wishes to become the victim of this type of crime let alone a victim who is elderly and suffering ill health.

"Paint has already been purchased to repaint the wall however due to the victim's current level of health they are unable to do this, causing upset.
