Couple put up 'Heaven is full' sign to stop speeders

A couple from east Devon have erected a sign saying "Slow - Heaven is full!" in a country lane near their home in a bid to get drivers to slow down.

The sign on Wooton Lane was put up by George and Mary Truell on the 60mph limit road which is used as a shortcut between new homes in Exmouth and a road to Exeter.

The Truells said they wanted to prevent accidents.

Highways bosses said the sign was illegal and have ordered the couple to remove it, but they have refused the request claiming the sign is on their land.
