Businesses may feel the need to check the location of their safety signage after a road sign was stolen in Gainsborough.

The structure welcomed motorists to the town, though now only two metal support posts are what remains of the sign that was previously situated on Lea Road, according to the Lincolnshire Echo.

Area highways manager Steve Wiles told the newspaper: "Sadly, the decorative sign in Lea Road appears to have been stolen.

"A sign of this type has little scrap value, so there's nothing to gain from this sort of theft."

As a result of the sign's disappearance, Mr Wiles told the newspaper that a replacement will now be introduced on the road.

The London Evening Standard recently reported that road signs in Kentish Town have caused confusion among drivers in the region.

People using Grafton Road have been fined more than £5 million pound after being baffled by the street's array of traffic lights and signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800564779-ADNFCR
