A member of the public has marked out multiple errors on a parking sign in Wrexham, which the council say will cost £7,000 to correct and replace.

Several words were circled with a black marker and ‘ofnadwy’, the Welsh word for awful, was also added.

The errors were shared on Twitter by Neil Wyn Jones who spotted the corrections.

He added in another Twitter post: “It’s hard to believe that signs with such obvious mistakes get to the point of manufacture let alone fitting”.

A Wrexham Council spokesperson said: “We are aware of the issue and will be replacing the signs with a version containing the correct Welsh translation”.
