With a resident’s permission, one of the candidates for the County Council elections recently put up a poster in a hedge in St Just. Within one day it was removed, dumped in the road with a note saying the hedge was council property. The candidate was unaware that the hedge (in front of someone’s garden) was council property and the housholder did not know that posters were not allowed. Another poster was stolen from a Gerrans garden.
The point is it was a windy day and could have blown about into the road , caused a traffic accident accident and injured someone. Luckily the postman retrieved it and put it in his van.
Readers should be aware that the police might treat similar acts as vandalism with serious consequences if proved.
