Denbighshire County Council at long last decided to have a purge and clear some of the advertising boards (A-boards) from Rhyl town centre; 81 were illegally placed. The situation had been going on for years.

A Sussex Street trader was front-paged in this week’s edition of The Journal. The trader was telling a sob story about how the cruel council had taken away “my street sign”. As the pictures above show, he had five of them: three in High Street, one (massive) in Sussex Street, and another on the corner of Queen Street.

Now other traders may be suffering because he went too far.
