Road signs changed after spelling howler

Red-faced contractors have replaced a set of road signs after local residents were surprised to see that their road had been renamed.

The new signs had been paid for out of developer’s contributions but contractors had left a W out of Newtown.

A council spokesman said that the contractors had been responsible for the error and the signs had been replaced “at no cost to the taxpayer”.

    I’m pleased to see that the contractors appreciate the gravity of this situation…
