One which reads "Covid-1984" is thought to refer to George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, which centres on totalitarianism, mass surveillance, and a repressive regime within society.

Telford & Wrekin Council confirmed it is working with the police and Madeley Town Council to find the culprit.
