Crouch End's controversial Kentucky Fried Chicken banners are being removed.
Haringey Council's revenue-earning banners came under fire from environmentalists objecting to their use in conservation areas when they were first put up two years ago, and healthy eating campaigners weighed in more recently when the council hired the space out to the fast food outlet.
Previously the council had said the banners would only be used for environmentally-friendly advertising.
Liberal Democrats have consistently criticised Haringey Council for ''cluttering local areas with garish banners''.MP Lynne Featherstone also contacted KFC directly to ask them to abort their advertising campaign.

Cllr David Winskill, Crouch End, commented:
"These banners are gaudy, tasteless and unwanted in an area like Crouch End. This is a council obsessed with advertising with little thought of the impact on local communities and residents living in a conservation area."
