Council in sock fiasco
Due to a "huge act of laziness", a local firm which painted the promenade railings in Blackpool has been lambasted for painting over a sock on the barrier instead of removing it.

The firm, which was not named, was ordered to remove the offending legwear that was tied to the fence and repaint it.

Blackpool council executive director of business services Julian Kearsley said that the hosiery humiliation would not be repeated.

He added: "Residents can be assured that we will be taking action to ensure embarrassing mistakes like this don't occur again in the future."

Another painting mistake in South Africa once involved a stop sign which read SOTP being sprayed onto the road of the Thekweni Municipality, according to IOL.
