England flags clarification

By on 11/06/2014 in News

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:

  • Housing
  • Highways
  • 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: press.office@birmingham.gov.uk
