'Why I became a brown sign spotter'

A woman with a unique hobby has told BBC 5 live why she has photographed thousands of brown signs – which direct people to places of local interest - across the world.

Amanda Hone is set be one of the first women to feature in the The Dull Men’s club annual calendar, which bills itself as "celebrating the ordinary".

In the past they have featured men who have hobbies like traffic cone collecting and roundabout enthusiasts.

The brown sign enthusiast told Emma Barnett how she started her hobby, which led to her quitting her job.

“It started out as a hobby, which got terribly out of hand over the years. I first started it at university when I was bored.”
