Complaints that photos on van are not suitable for children

Not my cup of coffee: parent

By Gráinne Brinkley

RESIDENTS of the Stewartstown Road area have called on the owner of a parked van advertising an adult entertainment company to move the vehicle out of the sight of children.

The van, which is advertising kissograms and strippers and includes images of people in various states of undress, was parked on a grass verge at the junction of Glengoland Park and Stewartstown Road on Tuesday afternoon, prompting one local parent to call the Andersonstown News and complain.

“It’s been parked there all day and children have been standing looking at it,” she said. “It’s just not appropriate or suitable for kids to see,” added the parent, who did not want to be named.

“It’s outrageous to advertise something like that in a built-up area, especially during mid-term break when children are off and I know that local residents will agree with me.”

However, Philip Moore, co-owner of adult entertainment company Coffee ‘n’ Cream, which owns the van, dismissed the parent’s claims that the advertisement was unsuitable for children.

“There’s nothing on that van that children wouldn’t see in a pop video on the TV,” said Mr Moore.

“It’s the parents of these children that are our clients anyway.

“The van actually broke down there, that’s why it’s sitting where it is, but it will be now moved on to another location.

“I’m just trying to drum up business, that’s all. There’s northing illegal on the van, it’s just an advert.”
