A warning sign has been knocked down at traffic lights in Morpeth.

The incident happened just as a a consultant visited the town to review the junction, with the Give Way safety notice outside St George's United Reformed Church being hit, reports the Morpeth Herald.

It was later re-erected by Northumberland County Council, but the damage remains and the notice will have to eventually be replaced.

Lights Out Chairman and county councillor David Towns said: “The damage at the lights this week just highlights how these things are a fairly regular occurrence.

"There are always lots of ifs and buts around the accidents, but that road sign was completely flattened. If someone had been standing at the entrance to the church we are talking serious injuries."

With adverse weather conditions now hitting the UK, it is important that all safety signage is clearly visible to motorists, who could otherwise be left in danger as snow and ice starts to grip the roads.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801524644-ADNFCR
