Person who has last painted obviously never heard of frog tape or something! Any ideas how I can remove? Easier the better plus I tried scraping with a plastic scraper thing. Thanks guys

Try a magic eraser or a nylon scouring pad used gently.

wet it with meths.

If you mix it with WUL it will evaporate more slowly, which is useful on vertical surfaces.

It will soften and wrinkle, then you can rub it off with a rag (preferably dipped in meths)

Gin might work.
