Take down those ‘ nonce’ posters!
COUNCIL tenants with posters on their windows warning residents to be on the alert for a “sex offender” have been ordered to take them down – or risk losing their homes.
Residents of a Dunbar street put up anti- sex offender warnings to parents to “be vigilant” following rumours that a known sex nonce was moving into a neighbouring house.
But they said they were warned by the police and council officials to remove the signs.
East Lothian Council confirmed that it had asked tenants to remove posters that were considered “offensive”.
A spokesman said: “It is part of a council tenant’s tenancy agreement not to publicly display material that may alarm or offend other residents.”
