New road signs introduced in Telford have been taken down temporarily after locals argued that they showed an incorrect street name.

The Shropshire Star has reported that residents know the road as Allscott, but the notices suggest it is called Back Lane, with one homeowner telling the news provider that the community is against the title.

"The first we knew of it was when we got up one morning and the signs were there. The parish council said it was the proper name but we have no evidence of that name historically," Bill Mooney, a resident in the area, said.

Mr Mooney stressed that locals would have liked to have been consulted ahead of the move.

Recently, the government outlined plans to reduce the number of needless road signs in the countryside.

Speaking to representatives from the Campaign to Protect Rural England, transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin said there are numerous "ugly and unnecessary" notices across the UK's network.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801501803-ADNFCR
