A MYSTERIOUS sign with a confusing spelling has baffled residents in Worle.

Villagers in Rubens Court were puzzled when a new sign appeared spelling the street name with an extra 'e'.

The sign on the corner of the road is spelt Reuben, while the sign in Gainsborough Drive reads 'Rubens Court'.

One resident says he contacted North Somerset Council highways department several times to find out what has gone wrong, but nothing has been done.
