Stuck in traffic with nowhere to go? Why not look out for a cheeky sign in a salon window?

The owner of one Hornchurch business had his tongue firmly in cheek when he put up this sign in his Station Lane premises, referring to the ongoing regeneration work in the area.

Johnpaul Wyndham, of Wyndham Hair, said: “I’ve had a few people give the thumbs up as they’ve gone past.

“The work started after the first week back after Christmas, and then there was the snow, none of this has helped business, but this work is adding to our problems.

“It seems like they’re digging up the same bits they did a couple of years ago, and when they’re finished will we see a massive improvement? We didn’t last year.”

Cllr Robert Benham, cabinet member for community empowerment, said: “Unfortunately with this type of work, there will be some disruption. The £2m programme will improve the town centre for future generations.

“We are sorry that there has been some disruption and we are working hard to minimise this.”
