A sign that was designed to promote an annual fete in Blagdon Hill has been removed amid health and safety concerns.

Somerset County Council described the sign as an obstruction and a distraction to drivers, but organisers of the event have stated that the notice was causing no harm to anyone, reports the Western Daily Press.

Explaining its action, the authority released a statement, saying: "We did recently remove one sign from a verge where it had been placed without any consultation with us and was not in an ideal position."

Somerset County Council added that it had spoken to the event's organisers in order to finalise another location for the sign.

Health and safety regulations have also affected signage in Old Coulsdon, with the Coulsdon and Purley Advertiser reporting that worries over safety have delayed the installation of new notices in the village.

The signage is designed to welcome visitors to the village, but the high cost of erecting them means they are yet to be unveiled.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801367315-ADNFCR
