Fake sheep put behind bars to stop driver confusion

Six green plastic sheep on a West Sussex roundabout have been put behind bright yellow safety barriers to stop drivers thinking they are real.

The fake flock was installed at the junction on the A283 in Shoreham at the end of November to reflect the South Downs National Park status.

West Sussex County Council said the sheep had also been painted green to stop drivers thinking they were real.

But it said it was working with the sponsor on a long-term solution
