Thanks Michael & Andrew

Yep, agree that looks like spam. Googling the company name brings back
pretty well exactly that data & description, so it's one we could delete,
but the problem is finding it?

The location on the map is in the middle of the oval at Southport High
School, but there's no nodes in the spot shown. The address listed would be
across the road & up the hill a little bit, but once again, no node shown
there either? I don't know if that business actually exists at that
location (& it's a 45 minute drive away, so I'm not going up to check it!).

How do we find the node with the spam data listed, or, as you say, has it
possibly been listed as a note only, so how do we delete the note?
