Media captionPolish angler Rado Papiewski wants to have the sign removed

The owner of a fishery which displayed a sign banning Polish and “Eastern bloc” anglers says it has been taken down after his family received threats.

Billy Evans of Field Farm Fisheries said the sign ran up because he had caught anglers stealing fish. He said he now are also welcome to closed the fishery.

Polish angler Rado Papiewski created more than PS10, 000 for a private prosecution to have the sign removed.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission says the sign was unlawful.

It had warned it would take “enforcement action” if necessary.
