Portable sign gives

a slippery warning

ALONG with frozen pipes, blocked drains and power cuts, the onset of winter brings with it another perennial farming problem – mud on the road.

Aimed at reducing the risk of accidents, Suffolk-based Pan Anglia has introduced a portable warning sign which is designed to alert motorists of the potential hazard of slippery roads.

Standing 0.7m (2ft 3in) high, the sign is made of weatherproof plastic and is self-supporting with an adjustable bracket and weighted base. Price is £47.25 (01787-371313).
