Double yellow lines measuring just 9in (23cm) long in central London have been branded "absurd" by the council which commissioned them.

The lines painted in Caxton Street, Westminster, have been painted between a taxi rank and some parking bays.

Westminster City Council said: "This was a mistake by a contractor. We are obviously not happy about it."

It added: "We can see how absurd this looks and we will make sure it is corrected."

Earlier this year, double yellow lines stretching 13in (33cm) were discovered on a street in Cambridge between parking bays in Humberstone Road.
