The Guardian’s eagle-eyed snapper spotted this sign in town last week. Good grief.

Somehow they’ve managed to cram five errors into an 11 word sign. This must be some sort of record.

Spelling errors, random words capped up, what a great big mess.

Did they get some local teenager to write it or something?

A sad indictment of literacy levels these days.
