Bilingual road sign in Hampshire Welsh road signs were also found in Purbrook in August

A road sign written in Welsh has appeared on Hampshire roads for the second time in three months.

In August, motorists in Purbrook, near Waterlooville were confronted with a sign warning of no road markings.

Another has been placed at a set of roadworks in Andover warning drivers to watch their speed because of skid risks and no road markings.

The town is more than 100 miles from Wales. Hampshire County Council has asked contractors to replace the signs.
