Diss carnival organisers have hit out after posters advertising a fundraising car boot sale were ripped down.

The 3 placards and 2 laminated posters were sited along the length of Park Road.

But the posters, which advertise a fundraising car boot sale which goes towards the cost of the carnival have been smashed and torn down.

"Within two days of putting up placards and posters advertising the carnival fund raising car boot sale this weekend on the park, they have been smashed down and all posters ripped from poles running along Park Road," said Sue Kiddie.

"We, the carnival committee,were criticised last year on social media for not adequately advertising the event with posters and boards .

"When we do, this is what happens."

County and district councillor, Keith Kiddie, who helped put up the posters, said: "It is just tragic. The carnival costs money to put on and the car boot sale is purely to raise money for this year's event."

The car boot sale takes place in the park, this Sunday, starting at 7am, and is £5 per pitch.
