A squashed hedgehog with double yellow lines painted on it in Hart Lane in Hartlepool. A worker painted yellow lines over a squashed hedgehog rather than move it off the road, a council spokeswoman admitted. Thursday August 12, 2010.



Hampshire County Council painted round a dead badger:

Mel Kendal, county council environment chief, said: “We would usually liaise with our colleagues at the district council who dispose of animal carcasses on the highways to ensure the badger was removed before the white line painting crew did this stretch of road. This appears not to have happened in this case and the white line painting crew did what they thought was best until arrangements could be made to dispose of the carcass. These arrangements have now been made and the gap in the white lines will be filled in, at no extra cost to the council tax payer.”
