A number of signs saying ‘Please slow down my daddy works here’ have been put up at key construction sites in the area with the aim of alerting drivers to construction workers and warning them to slow down.

Martyn Dews ‏tweeted: ‘I thought the sign a bit odd too. More importantly so did my wife and daughters.’

The Joy of Bex ‏tweeted: ‘This is one for @EverydaySexism I believe…’
