THE county council is looking into the matter of the missing letter T in a new road sign.

The road sign on the A27 Eastern Way in Fareham has misspelt Portchester by omitting the first T.

It had been put up as part of a £2m remodelling of the nearby Quay Street roundabout in Fareham, alongside the building of a new Tesco.

Councillor Mel Kendal, who is in charge of transport matters at Hampshire County Council, said: ‘A spelling error on a sign put up by Tesco’s contractors has been reported to us.

‘Our highways engineers will be contacting them to ensure appropriate action is taken to address this, and any other issues relating to the works at the Quay Street roundabout.’
