Fly posters advertising a Fair at ROKO Health Club
The York Council has taken action to remove posters which were illegally fly posted across west York.

Officials say that 40 posters have been removed and that they plan to take legal action against those responsible.
The posters had caused particular concern because they were attached to street furniture using sellotape which is difficult to remove.
Council officials say that they have removed over 40 posters.
They ask that if a resident sees any others which have been missed that they report them.
A Freedom of Information request has been lodged with the Council asking them to reveal how many prosecutions for fly posting have been undertaken during the last 3 years.
Local Councillors Sheena Jackson and Stephen Fenton took the opportunity to ask young people what leisure facilities they would like to see developed when the Fair was in the area last week.

The Fair was held at the Acorn Rugby Ground. The Acorn Rugby team have fared quite well in National League 1 this season. They have recorded 11 victories.
Across the road, the Beagle football team recorded another win on Saturday. They travelled to Bubwith where they forced a 2 – 1 victory. They are at home at Chesneys Field next Saturday when they host Stamford Bridge in a 2:00pm kick off.
