A wonky yellow line painted on a road in Kewstoke will be corrected, according to North Somerset Council.

A single yellow line was painted in Beach Road last week, but the authority's contractor failed to line it up straight, painting around a sand drift.

Parking charges around the Sand Bay area came into effect on March 13 and apply from 8am-6pm, seven days a week.

The car park near the Commodore Hotel end was tidied up and its spaces were widened in February.

The council also made major improvements which included a revamped Sand Road car park and bus terminus area.

A council spokesman said: “Painting lines on a sandy seafront location is always going to be challenging.

“In this case, the lines are a wobble too far and we will be asking our contractor to redo them as soon as possible.

“We might even give them some extra lines to do for homework.”
