Praise for Swindon graffiti gang as railway museum transformation gets under way
These pictures show the impressive work just completed by teenagers from the Youth First Centre in Walcot.
A graffiti-inspired mural that now surrounds the former railway museum in Faringdon road, which is currently undergoing a £1 million pound transformation into what will be called 'The Platform' - a brand-new centre dedicated to youth in Swindon.
Loud and proud:

"I think they've done a fantastic job," said Garry Perkins, cabinet member for Children Services at Swindon Borough Council.
"The museum is being completed gutted and made into a one-stop shop for young people in Swindon, with a cafe, advice centre, recording studio, dance area and more.
"This artwork is just the start of what I believe is going to be brilliant project."
