Monmouthshire Council says it's taking steps to correct the misspelt 'Alpaca crossing' road sign.

Yesterday we brought you the story of a couple who swapped banking for alpaca farming and applied to their local council for a crossing sign to warn drivers of the possibility of alpacas crossing the road.

After the story aired on Wales at Six, we received a few messages pointing out that the Welsh translation was spelled wrong and should have been 'Alpacaod yn croesi' instead of 'Alpacaod un croesi.'

Monmouthshire Council says it's grateful to those who pointed out the error.

We are aware that a sign on the B4235 Chepstow to Usk road is incorrect. There appears to have been an error within the Welsh translation we received. We are taking steps to rectify this and are grateful to those who have pointed it out.
