New Stamford road sign honours war hero

A new road sign has been introduced in Stamford to commemorate war veteran Jack Audas.

However, the Stamford Mercury reports that the sign was put up with a spelling mistake, reading Audus rather than Audas.

South Kesteven District Council has stepped in to correct the mistake, with a new version now in place with the correct spelling.

Portfolio holder for economic development Frances Cartwright told the news provider that she contacted residents directly to help to correct the mistake.

“We have sought to make the transition as smooth as possible and have agreed to look at any additional costs involved such as change of house name signs, on an individual basis,” Ms Cartwright explained.

She added that she was “delighted” to have been able to correct the problem.

If road users spot signs that include spelling mistakes, they should contact their local authority immediately.

It is especially important that safety signs with errors are corrected quickly, as they could otherwise lead to accidents.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801586306-ADNFCR
