A mystery person has put fake signs in an area of a city to mislead people into believing parking is restricted to residents only.

Someone in Bath, Somerset has taken it upon themselves to create a new 'F' Residents Parking Zone in the upmarket Sion Hill area.

Parking - Signs - Stick - Letter - F

The parking signs appear to have been adapted with a stick on letter F.

One problem - Zone F does not even exist under the Bath and North East Somerset Council parking scheme which goes from 1-16 and A, B, and C only.

Resident - 'I

One resident said: 'I've seen them - I'm not sure where they came from.

'They weren't put up during the day.

Bit - Banksy - Night - Time

'Whether there's a bit of Banksy going on at night time I don't know.'

Another added: 'It's clever - they look professional and are clearly not professional.


'Whether anyone is fooled by them I don't know.'

Bath and North East Somerset Council Highways team said it was on the case and would be removing the signs.
