POSTERS for slimming groups and fitness centres have been “littering” the centre of Amesbury according to the town council.

Roger Fisher told his fellow councillors at a meeting held last Tuesday: “These posters are everywhere, on lampposts and stuck up all over the town.

“It is an offence. There are several legitimate ways to advertise a business but fly-posting is not one of them.”

The council resolved to write to the companies involved asking them to remove the posters and said enforcement action could be taken as fly-posting is illegal.
