Residents wanting to catch a bus at one Scarborough shelter have been left looking at service information from 90 miles away.

The bus shelter, outside the new Lidl store on Seamer Road, was repositioned during construction of the supermarket.

In this time, the decision was made to "upgrade" the bus stop with a reconditioned shelter from Lincoln.

However the third party which maintains bus shelters for Scarborough Borough Council has made a boo boo by forgetting to remove the map and information relating to Lincoln.

Bus passengers contacted The Scarborough News informing us of the mistake, which Scarborough Borough Council have said will be rectified shortly.

A council spokesman said: "Bus shelters are maintained by a third party on behalf of Scarborough Borough Council. During highways works in connection with the new Lidl build, the shelter was repositioned, and then upgraded with a reconditioned shelter from Lincoln.

“Unfortunately this still carried some material relating to the city. This oversight has now been pointed out to the third party and they will be taking steps to rectify the error.”
