Tower ‘amlets have introduced a new way to discourage illegal fly-posting, by sticking their very own fly-post on top. Word from the council is – “This is a creative way to crack down on fly-posting. We’re showing would-be fly-posters that they’ll be wasting their money if they put up illegal advertisements in the borough. It can take up to 45 minutes to remove just one poster and often scraps of paper are left behind – but it only takes a couple [of] seconds [to] stick the ‘It’s Cancelled’ sticker on.”
What clever people.
