Gloucestershire housing developer apologises after installing misspelled road signs

Residents at a newly built estate have been complaining after multiple misspelled roadsigns were put up.

Those living on the Greenacres estate, in Bishop's Cleeve, Gloucetershire, counted three signs that were incorrectly spelled.

Among the mistakes was a sign put up last which week, which spelled 'crescent' as 'crecent'.

A spokesperson for Persimmon Homes said: “Our technical team has been working at the Bishop’s Cleeve development and the incorrect signs, which are regrettably due to human error, have been identified.

"New signs have now been made and will be fixed in position imminently.”
