Foreign warning signs that notify migrant employees of a road diversion in Worcestershire have been removed amid health and safety concerns.

The signs were erected on a level crossing in Blackminster, where Network Rail was conducting work, but the Highways Agency took them down because they did not meet "prescribed standards", reports the BBC.

A representative from the Highways Agency said: "Unfortunately the [Blackminster diversion] signs did not meet the prescribed standards for such signs, as set out in the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2002."

The group added that only road signs near ports were displayed in foreign languages within England and Wales, which are limited to speed limit information and "drive on the left reminders".

It comes after the Daily Gazette revealed that the Highways Agency has been criticised by the Essex Federation of Small Businesses for not installing efficient safety signs on the A12 junction.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800704846-ADNFCR
