Parish councillors have received a complaint about a publicity banner which was tied to railings next to Haworth War Memorial.

Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council chairman, Councillor John Huxley, said the complaint about the insensitive location of the banner was originally lodged by an Oxenhope resident. He said: “We’ve no powers over this sort of matter, so I therefore referred it to our district councillors. I understand that the offending banner has now been removed.”
