Britain's GAUDIEST kebab shop told to remove £5,000 sign

Britain's gaudiest takeaway sign must be removed after neighbours claimed it gave them headaches and distracted drivers.

Council officers in Aberdeen told staff at Bodrum's Kebab House to remove the giant LED sign, which includes an animation of a man carving doner meat.

A viral video saw the takeaway sign dubbed the 'new Northern lights' because of its illuminating power.

The animated display shows the shop's name, the word 'authentic', and its phone number bouncing next to a graphic of a motorbike as well as shots of staff shaving kebab meat.

But the sign has breached planning laws in the city because it is animated.

Kebab shop boss Reza Nazar, 31, said he spent about £5,000 on the eye-catching advertisement and installed it last month.

Speaking to a local newspaper, Mr Nazar said: 'I got permission for the new sign but didn't realise it wasn't allowed to be moving.

'I spoke to a guy from the council who said it couldn't be animated. Apparently they'd had some complaints. Apparently it is a distraction to drivers.

'But someone from the council has since phoned me back and told me that I have to remove it altogether.'
