Sign graffiti amuses Stoney Stanton drivers

Motorists in Stoney Stanton have been left amused by a road sign in the area, which has been modified by locals to include a camel.

The notice advises drivers to watch out for the animals in Clint Hill Drive after a silhouette of the creature was incorporated into a "humps for 700 yards" warning sign, reports the Leicester Mercury.

Leicestershire County Council saw the funny side of the graffiti, admitting that removing the modified sign was not a top priority.

"Camels are known for being resilient and hard-working, like our highway teams. So we're not going to get the hump about this sign," a representative from the authority explained.

Amusing signs have been found in other areas of the UK, with residents in Ashton Hayes left baffled last year when a sign in their village was modified to feature the name of Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher.

The Chester Chronicle reported that the village sign, Golden Lion Pub were all renamed after the actor. The prank was put together by TV channel Comedy Central.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801535667-ADNFCR
