Fly-posting is against the law
Fly-posting is the display of advertising material on buildings and street furniture without consent of the owner.
Fly-posting is against the law and the police and our authorised officers can issue a fixed penalty notice of £80 for fly-posting offences - this is to help cover the costs of removal of the material.
It is also termed criminal damage and this carries a maximum custodial sentence of ten years.
