Many motorists driving into Brigg, along Wrawby Road, will have been surprised to glimpse this sign, not far from the entrance to the school. Frazer Melton is one of those eagle-eyed drivers and says: "I can't decide if it means 'Warning (there are) no Chavs' or 'Chavs keep out'. Could this be part of the new highway code? In no way are we condoning mistreatment of road signs, which serve an important function, but it has made some folk chuckle! Our thanks go to
Joe Coleman for the picture.

For those who may not be familiar with a recent addition to the English language, a Chav is defined as a sub-cultural sterotype fixated with fashions involving imitation gold, poorly-made jewellery and designer clothing, combined with elements of working class British street fashion.
