CAN you spot anything wrong with this sign?

That’s right, council workers got the spelling of “obstruct” wrong.

Instead the sign says that locals must not “obstuct” the gates behind Scholes precinct.

Council bosses say the issue is being looked into and will be rectified.

Janice Barton, chief executive of Wigan and Leigh Homes, said: “I’d like to thank the person who brought this spelling error to our attention.

“We are currently in the process of reviewing all of our signs so will add this one to our list.”
