North or south? Blundering worker writes 'Nouth' on road in Stafford

North or south? Blundering worker writes 'Nouth' on road in Stafford
It was a bad spell on the roads for drivers in Stafford town centre hoping to join the M6 north on Thursday.

Drivers were left scratching their heads after a contractor having an off-day painted a road sign directing traffic to the 'M6 Nouth' instead of 'North'.

The error, appearing next to a direction for the M6 South, was made by a utility worker employed by Severn Trent Water following the end of a work programme in the town.

Jonathan Smith, a spokesman for Severn Trent Water, said: "The sign was painted in haste on Tuesday.

"Obviously we're not proud of it. The guys were under a lot of pressure to get it done quickly."

The mistake is now being corrected by the contractor
