Iconic sign causes havoc for Hollywood residents

Help

One of the icons of the entertainment industry, the Hollywood sign, is annoying some local residents who say it is attracting too many tourists.

The sign, which was built in 1923, is high in the steep Los Angeles hills but satellite navigation systems are making it easier for tourists to find their way through the area's winding roads and narrow alleyways.

Frustrations are growing over increased traffic and fire risks in the arid area.
