A £100,000 a year campaign by Glasgow City Council to fight the ever increasing number of fly-posters appearing in their city. Instead of ripping them down, as they've been doing for years, they're adding 'cancelled' stickers to event posters and just painting out the brand names on others.

Core77 points us to a £100,000 a year campaign by Glasgow City Council to fight the ever increasing number of fly-posters appearing in their city. Instead of ripping them down, as they’ve been doing for years, they’re adding ‘cancelled’ stickers to event posters and just painting out the brand names on others. The Evening Times reports:
