PEOPLE living near Castle Hill are supporting a ban on kite-flying on the landmark.
Their backing came just days after enthusiasts defied the ban.
Gerry Murphy, chairman of Newsome Tenants' and Residents' Association, said the protest was wrong.
He said: "Many years ago a young girl was badly burned when her kite string got caught on a power line.
"The rule is there for a good reason. It's dangerous to fly kites on Castle Hill."
A storm erupted after a warden told three youngsters not to fly their kites.
Last Sunday, a group of protesters defied the ban by flying their kites on top of the Huddersfield landmark.
Mr Murphy said: "There has been a by-law against kite-flying for some years.
"We'll be pushing for the signs to be more prominent."
