Unofficial tourist signA fake brown tourist sign pointing to an "official dogging area" at a Cotswold beauty spot has been ripped down by angry residents.

The phrase "dogging" has nothing to do with walking your favourite hound around a beautiful tourist spot. It is modern day parlance for public sexual activity and the fame of Barrow Wake viewpoint for such goings on is causing local residents all kinds of problems.

The sign was spotted by a Radio Gloucestershire reporter and you can read all about it on the BBC News website for Gloucestershire. It's already one of the "most read" stories on the news pages. We'll feature residents reaction to the sign on Wednesday's show.
