Westminster residents are increasingly complaining about cards left in telephone boxes to advertise prostitutes' services, says Robert Moreland, chair of the council's planning and environment committee in The Daily Telegraph (p11).

'Our argument is not with prostitution, but with the people who deface the city's streets with this offensive and often pornographic material,' he said.

BT is taking part in a campaign to stop the practise by blocking the telephone numbers on cards repeatedly advertised in boxes. 'This is just the beginning, we will be watching the results of the campaign closely,' cllr Moreland said.
