Residents anger over new street signs

Birmingham residents have expressed their anger over the removal of some of the city's traditional ornate cast-iron Victorian street signs.

They have been substituted for aluminium alternatives in Abbotts Road amid the council's claims that many of them are brittle and require replacement.

Broken signs are being sold for scrap and are collecting up to £15 each, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Coun Sharpe, a member of the council's conservation and heritage panel, told the newspaper: "There was no need to replace the sign in Abbots Road. This was a perfectly good sign, it was strong enough and solid. All it needed was a lick of paint and a polish."

Recently, the BBC reported that a parish council chairman in the village of Glanton criticised Northumberland County Council's decision to remove two promotional signs.

They advertised the Glanton Show event and the news may cause companies to assess the effectiveness of their warning signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800690938-ADNFCR
