We have been made aware of the following tweet this morning: https://twitter.com/MWilliamsWBA/status/476614268566380545
Quite amazing, letters from Birmingham Council telling residents that they will be fined £40 for displaying an England flag!
This was followed by a media enquiry.
We have checked with:
- Regulatory Services
- Planning enforcement
and can find no evidence that people have been threatened with a £40 for displaying an England flag.
We cannot see why such a letter would be issued but if the author of the tweet or anyone else can shed any light on the situation, we will happily look into the situation. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
