City of Glasgow "cancels" show flyers

The city council of Glasgow, Scotland has escalated a fight against illegal show flyers in a most mischievous way. Paid city workers are placing large stickers reading "Cancelled" across posters hung in prohibited areas. They've also taken to painting over the ads until they can be properly removed. An article in the Evening Times quotes a council source who commented, "We can be a complete pain in the neck to the people doing this because the money and time they spend is completely wasted. And there's no point getting in a designer to produce a fancy poster when it will soon be a mess that doesn't tell anyone anything."

The article claims that some "rogue promoters" have been inundated with complaints from potential show goers thinking that gigs have been cancelled. Check the linked article for more on this. (Photo by Jamie Simpson)
