'Illegal' alien give way sign criticised

A give way sign which has had an alien painted on it near a Devon village has been criticised as "criminal damage" by the local council.

An unknown person painted the alien on the sign near Chawleigh. It was previously adorned with a dinosaur.

Village resident Julie, who did not give her surname, said: "We've loved them both and it just gives us a bit of happiness and hilarity in the local area. We don't think we've got aliens, we don't think we've got dinosaurs but you never know."

In a statement, Devon County Council said: "This is an illegal sign that has been put up as some sort of joke. However, can we remind people that this constitutes criminal damage and can be off-putting for motorists driving along the road." Devon and Cornwall Police has not yet commented.
