Untidy fly posters add to decay and social blight

I imagine Adrian Shaughnessy doesn’t live next to or in a building constantly covered by fly posters (Private View, DW 2 September). He won’t deal daily with the social blight caused when a neglected area gets run down. He won’t suffer from a rising fear of crime that happens when an area is left to decay.

Westminster City Council spends £400 000 a year cleaning up fly-posting – we recognise the social blight caused by an untidy, uncared for neighbourhood.

Corporate responsibility means more than a nice photo opportunity every year and record companies must recognise the social harm their actions cause.
