Sign snaps off in “violent” wind

Police were called after a road sign was blown onto a road near Cayton Bay in “violent winds” earlier this morning.

North Yorkshire Police received a call at approximately 10am this morning, after a concerned motorist raised the alarm over the stray road sign.

Eventually, the police arrived. However, the pole holding the sign snapped.

North Yorkshire County Council was then called out to clear the sign off the road, before the road was re-opened very shortly afterwards.
