Fake signs have popped up around Brighton and Hove falsely claiming certain areas are 'designated cannabis zones'.

Brighton and Hove City Council posted an image of one of the posters on its social media sites, and said the signs are fake.

A council spokesperson said: “These fake signs are running on social media and have been spotted across the city in areas like The Level. It’s a nice try by someone, but no one should be fooled. The police are in the process of taking them down, and if you see one please let them know.

“Anyone affected by substance misuse should contact www.safeinthecity.info for help and advice or contact a reputable drugs counselling group.”
