With the York Council having made some recent progress in getting to grips with the problem of graffiti in parts of the City, it is disappointing to see an upsurge in fly posting.
Fly posters have always been a problem with fairs, circuses and music venues among the main culprits.
But now the City centre is being covered in stickers.
These are mainly from fringe political groups. Ironically one of the main offenders is a climate change group who seem to be blissfully unaware of the environmental costs of removing the stickers
Given the move towards digital communications , there really is no justification for despoiling the City’s historic core in this way in the 21st century.
The Council, police and amenity societies need to take a stand against this trend.
