@Sargepatrol on Twitter spotted what he called the ‘best road sign of the day’ near Tesco in Crawley

Designed to make people aware of roadworks the sign has in fact created more confusion for mystified motorists. It reads: “This road will be closed for any inconvenience 06/04/21 for one day sorry.”

The amusing sign sparked many humorous comments on social media.

Dave Gander said: “Reminds me of Eric Morecambe and Andrew Preview (sic), all the right words but not necessarily in the right order.”

@tweeky_2 added: “You had one job”

The sign is now understood to have been corrected as of April 1.
