The mayor of a northern Italian town announced a ban on shops selling kebabs and sandwiches from Friday, saying he objected to their smell and complaining they were not part of Italian tradition.

Massimo Botocci, a member of the populist Northern League and the mayor of Cittadella, near Padua, said such shops were banned from the centre of the medieval walled city.

This kind of food production was "not suited to our historic centre (because of) the way in which the foods are eaten, the smell they give off...", said Bitocci, citing health and sanitation regulations.

"If someone wants to eat a kebab, he can do it at home or outside of the historic centre," he added.

"They aren't part of our tradition."
