Residents of Hurst Close, Chingford in London say they have been manipulated by eight oversized 20mph signs painted in their small sewer

Resident Tracey Gauld, 49, told The Sun: “It’s what you’d expect on a motorway, not a minor motorway.

“You can’t get to 20mph. Why do it?”

“It’s completely crazy. Strange. We couldn’t believe it.”

“There must have been a team of four or five people on a pencil and they literally had to try to use paint,” says Tracey.

“They come back in half an hour, forty-five minutes and go.”

Tracey said that none of the residents were consulted before they started painting the sign.

Tracey added: “Obviously people doing that are being abused a lot by people because they’re saying what the hell are you doing, why are you putting it here, it’s a spinning block and they just know where to put them.

“What the hell are they thinking?

“It’s a council horror story.”

London’s Waltham Forest, which painted them in Hurst Close, Chingford, says the signs cost £60 each and it follows government regulations on size.
