‘Covid is a scam’ material posted across the Ortons
Anti-lockdown material has been posted across the Ortons in Peterborough.
Posters describing Covid as a “scam” have been located in Orton Goldhay, including on a bin, lamppost, green junction box and even on a parish council notice board in Church Drive, Orton Waterville.
Among the messages posted are: “Don’t live in fear! Covid is a scam!” and “stop lockdowns”.
A fence has also been targeted with graffiti stating: “Mask = slave”.
Some of the messages have been removed by Orton Waterville Parish Council.
Green Party councillor Julie Howell, who sits on the parish council and Peterborough City Council, said: “I don’t imagine the messages will have much impact on people’s behaviour. The clean up operation is going to be costly and it will be council taxpayers that foot the bill.”
