Fly-posting, graffiti and vandalism

We can investigate fly-posting, graffiti and vandalism on both public and private property if the offence has been witnessed taking place.

We are unable to remove fly-posting, graffiti and vandalism from:

  • heights or where specialist training or equipment is needed
  • surfaces where its removal would cause further damage


Fly-posting includes signs, posters or stickers placed at/on unauthorised sites for advertising purposes without permission from us or the owner.

If you are found to be responsible for an act of fly-posting, we can issue you with a fine (fixed penalty notice) of £100.
