Leeds pub prosecution 'highlights importance of no smoking signs'

25th November 2009 | No Smoking Signs

A pub in Leeds has been prosecuted under anti-smoking legislation brought in during July 2007, a source reveals, highlighting the importance of no smoking signs.

Angela and Peter Mills were found guilty for not stopping customers from smoking in the Omnibus pub, the Yorkshire Evening Post reports.

Magistrates found the pair guilty and gave them conditional discharges, ordering them to pay £750 in costs.

Two police raids were made earlier this year in which customers were found to be smoking, highlighting the importance of using adequate no smoking signs in premises.

Outside the court, 60-year-old Mr Mills said: "I'm totally stunned. The only sense of relief is that I got a conditional discharge."

Earlier this month, Norwich's City Centre Safer Neighbourhood Team was praised for its efforts to reduce anti-social behaviour in the city, which included introducing no smoking signs, the Norwich Evening News reported.

Officers also cleared rubbish and encouraged members of the YMCA to get involved in a programme of restorative justice.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19479099-ADNFCR
