Vandals move speed signs

vandals:‘Criminal vandalism’ in Congresbury is not the work of youngsters, according to one North Somerset councillor.

A vehicle-activated sign on the A370 has been vandalised for the second time this month, by being turned away from oncoming traffic.

Cllr Tom Leimdorfer said: “This criminal vandalism is not the work of youngsters.

“These are people determined to make our roads less safe and are prepared to go to great lengths to avoid being reminded that they are driving dangerously.

“This vandalism requires a ladder and tools and was probably carried out at night.

“I hope anyone who has information will contact the police or North Somerset Council.”
