A teenager who vandalised warning signs in Gleneagles, Scotland, has been ordered to pay back "every single penny" of the cost of his graffiti.

Daniel Carlin, from Glasgow, spray-painted the signs on the A9 road with the words "byro" and "blah", which were the 19-year-old's 'tags', the BBC reported.

He admitted damaging the signs and has been ordered to pay back the £4,206 cost via monthly instalments of £150.

Carlin was caught when he walked into a police station with cans of spray paint in his bag and photos of his work on his mobile phone.

Sheriff Robert McCreadie said was quoted by the BBC as saying: "This was childish, puerile, stupid, idiotic, immature behaviour which the rest of us find difficult to fathom. How would he feel if someone came up to his property and spray painted it?

"Road signs are of particular significance as they may be related to road safety. I expect him to pay every single penny back to the taxpayer for the damage he caused."ADNFCR-2754-ID-800303449-ADNFCR
