A roundabout on the A51 near Crewe has been found with no banner/bedsheet message of Happy Birthday on it.
Traffic slowed to a virtual halt when drivers realised that nobody was coming up to forty years of age in the area.
Local driver, Peter Thape got his emergency bedsheet and tin of black paint out of his car, and wished drivers a lovely upcoming weekend.
‘Drivers who approach the roundabout expect to see the daily banners,’ said Thape.
‘How else do you catch up on birthdays, it’s better than Facebook,’ added Thape.
