Hundreds of people have signed a petition to back a Widdrington farm business in a dispute over its advertising signs, illustrating the kind of issue that can affect companies with safety signage.

The Country Barn and Coffee shop has seen over 500 people sign the petition, after Northumberland County Council demanded that it takes down four promotional boards that are situated on road between Morpeth and Amble, reports the Morpeth Herald.

Peter Jackson, the leader of Northumberland conservatives, told the newspaper: "It is unacceptable that council bureaucrats are frustrating economic growth by making it nearly impossible for businesses to advertise their location in order to enhance their commercial prospects."

Mr Jackson added that the local economy should be doing everything that it can to support business.

Earlier this week, BBC South Scotland reported that pranksters have been blamed for two different road signs in the Scottish Borders.

Those who drive down St Andrews Street in Galashiels are greeted with two signs, with one that displays a 30mph limit and another that indicates a 20mph speed limit. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800638793-ADNFCR
