The tongue-in-cheek post to social media by the Leeds Northwest Neighbourhood Policing team stated: “Last night NPT officers attended Manor Road, Horsforth again after we received reports that drivers were still struggling with the signage (as you can see, it is pretty cryptic!) and driving the wrong way down the one-way system.

“You may remember our previous post where around 50 drivers were advised on the (then-recent) change and asked to turn around.

“This is a busy route in and out of Leeds, in a residential area and the change has now been in place for over a month. The road markings are now very clear. There is no excuse."
