Man fined for fly-posting
A man from Snaith, near Goole, has accepted a fixed penalty of £225 for fly-posting in Beverley. The man admitted putting up three advertising signs on public land without the permission of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, despite previously being warned against doing so. The signs were found in Wingfield Way and Victoria Road, Beverley.
After investigation by the council’s streetscene enforcement team, the man accepted a fixed penalty notice of £75 for each sign – a total of £225 – and the case did not proceed to court. Now, East Riding Council is reminding residents that it’s a criminal offence to place a sign on highways land without the council’s permission. Mike Featherby, head of streetscene services, said: “We will investigate any signs placed without the council’s permission, as they could be a hazard to motorists.”
