Mr Lymer told the BBC: "It feels like the situation has been taken too far as it was meant to be a joke.
"The signs have been there for 10 years, we have a customer base of about 1,000 people and it has never been an issue until recently."I'm going to have to get creative with some toned down adverts."A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "We've received no complaints about signage outside J W Ash and Son butchers in Leek."However, the local chief inspector did advise the owner to give careful consideration to what was written on the boards in case anyone took offence. No other action has been taken."
