Prostitutes anger Town Hall over Isle of Dogs phonebox posters

POSTERS advertising prostitutes with their call numbers have angered a local councillor in London’s East End who has had to get them removed.

There were posters plastered on 21 public phone kiosks on the Isle of Dogs where Tower Hamlets Tory councillor Peter Golds (pictured) lives.

“These posters are offensive,” he told the East London Advertiser. “But I’m pleased at how quickly our contractors took action when I alerted the Town Hall.”

They were ripped down by council contractors from the kiosks including some at Marsh Wall close to Canary Wharf and along the main Manchester Road and Eastferry Road.

Cllr Golds is now calling on neighbourhood police at Millwall to take action against the women advertising on the posters.
