Narnia and Middle Earth removed from road signage

Fantasy locations that were added to five signs along the A4130 in Didcot have now been taken down

Narnia and Middle Earth removed from road signage
The local authority said the signs posed a threat to road safety.

Fictional place names including Narnia, Gotham City and Neverland have been removed from road signs in Didcot, Oxfordshire.

The amusing destinations, which also included Middle Earth and Emerald City were removed by Oxfordshire County Council to prevent drivers from being distracted.

The authority originally said it would prioritise road repairs, but a maintenance team on a “post-snow sweep-through”  recently took the opportunity to remove the bogus lettering.

A spokesperson said: “They had to come off.

“We have to take a tough line on unauthorised signage as there is good evidence drivers do get distracted.

“Safety is an absolutely priority.”
