Lollipop man's thank you sign makes a welcome return

A lollipop man who was told he couldn't use a sign thanking motorists for their patience is delighted he can once more use it again.

Hull resident Phil Boreham held a little sign reading "thank you", showing it to drivers when they stopped at the pelican crossing he looks after on the city's Princes Avenue.

However, the city council banned the lollipop man from using it, saying it was illegal and could potentially distract motorists, the BBC reports.

But the council has now agreed to reverse its decision.

"I'm very ecstatic. The members of the public have been behind me, what more can I say except 'thank you'," Mr Boreham told the news provider.

He explained that Mike Ross, a local councillor, had made a personal visit to inform him, in a meeting in which "we more or less kissed and made up".

Mr Ross told the news provider: "If we can't have a bit of common courtesy these days then really it's not a good sign for things is it?"
