Councillors have been criticised for deciding to ban promotional signs among safety signage on roads in Helston.

These signs were banned by councillors amid concerns that they appear untidy and could become a distraction for motorists, though the Helston Chamber and Mullion School last week used roadside signs to publicise its events, reports West Briton.

Mike Sandford, head teacher at Mullion School, said: "If we thought that many people were upset by this, or that there had been accidents caused by people looking at the notices, we would immediately take them down."

Mr Sandford also remarked that the signs were a cheap and inoffensive way of advertising community events, allowing schools to spend less public money on their advertising.

An article in the Burton Mail has highlighted how one motorcyclist believes that Derbyshire County Council is not installing enough warning signs on Park Road in Burton.

The man in question, Christopher Wiggins, described using the road as being like riding on ice.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800603297-ADNFCR
