Bad mark­ing for road sign

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

BLUN­DER­ING work­men paint­ing road mark­ings out­side a pri­mary school were left red-faced af­ter daub­ing “SCHOUL” in bright yel­low paint.

Pupils boasted how they could spell much bet­ter than the adults who painted the warn­ing sign to de­ter par­ents park­ing out­side school gates.

And the work­men were in­vited to at­tend spell­ing lessons at Wolver­cote Pri­mary School, Ox­ford­shire, to help out.

Six-year-old pupil Daniel Cox said: “I can spell ‘school’ bet­ter than that.”

A par­ent added: “It wouldn’t be a bad idea if they came back here for a few lessons.”

Coun­cil spokesman Owen Mor­ton said there were no im­me­di­ate plans to re­paint the blun­der.

He said it would be looked at “in fu­ture high­way main­te­nance work in the area”.
