A county council in Wales has declined to paint warning signs on a dangerous road due to the cost of writing them in both English and Welsh.

Carmarthenshire Council chose not to paint markings on a dangerous section of Harleyford Road, despite a young boy almost being killed in the area, reports the South Wales Evening Post.

The boy's football coach, Alan Blackley, 42, told the newspaper: "The car was coming up the road and the boy went to cross. It hit him, but he was lucky it was not going any faster as he only came away with minor injuries."

Mr Blackley requested that he be allowed to erect his own signs, but was advised not to by the highways department.

The Cambs Times has revealed that a road safety campaigner in Cambridgeshire has thanked Cambs County Council for boosting the visibility of a warning sign at the Upwell Road/Sixteen Foot bank junction.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800753094-ADNFCR
