You Couldn’t Make It Up!
I first saw this story back in the summer, and it has stuck with me ever since, and so I thought I would share it!
A council in the North of England opened itself up to ridicule by building a fence straight through the middle of a set of goalposts. The fence is part of a boundary around a new children’s playground that has been installed in the park by York council.
The gaff led to confusion and a certain amount of amusement from locals who use the park. However, counsellors said that it was a deliberate action, as the posts were to be replaced to face in the opposite direction.
Brings a whole new meaning to playing in defence!
