People in South Gloucestershire were left laughing after spotting a mistake at an electrical vehicle charging point in Kingswood.

South Gloucestershire Council posted on social media saying it was notified of the 'unfortunate mistake' but was 'heartened' to hear that a worker went to rectify the mistake in their own time.

The spelling error was soon corrected and 'vechicles' became the better-known 'vehicles'.
