Woman dumps cheating husband with motorway sign

A scorned woman dumped her husband in a big way yesterday - by announcing it on a huge roadside sign.

The billboard in which 'Lisa' dumps cheating 'Paul'

The wife, known only as Lisa, left the giant 15ft x 10ft message overnight for husband Paul to see on his drive to work.

But thousands of other motorists also saw it as she put it alongside the busy Sheffield Parkway, a major commuter route into the South Yorkshire city.

It read:

To my cheating husband Paul. You deserve each other. When you get home I won't be there.

Enjoy your drive to work! Lisa.

– 'Lisa'

The sign went up around 11pm on Tuesday night by the side of the dual carriageway, which runs off the M1 for five miles into Sheffield. Mark Catterall, from advertising agency Kong Media who sold Lisa the advertising space, said she paid "hundreds of pounds" for her exit sign.

Billboard company Anco Digital confirmed the sign was displayed for three hours between 6am and 9am on Wednesday morning.
