A "spelling mistake" has been spotted on a £16,000 art installation in Altrincham.

The 13ft (4m) Welcome to Altrincham metal slab has been erected on Stamford New Road, outside the transport interchange.

There appears to be a spare "M" after the word Altrincham and before Market on part of the sign.

Trafford Council said "the issues identified on the marker" would be rectified.

A statement said the sign was erected following a wide public consultation.

The structure cost £15,232 plus installation costs of £790, the council added.
