A half-done pedestrian crossing has been branded "ridiculous" by fuming locals.

Residents of Perranporth in Cornwall were left scratching their heads after a ludicrous picture emerged of a pedestrian crossing that had only been partially repainted and resurfaced.

The crossing, which is very faded and worn down, had one of the stripes resurfaced and a new lick of paint applied, sticking out like a sore thumb next to the other neglected stripes.

Even more absurdly, they hadn’t even done the whole stripe, just one end of it.

It looks as though the contractors started but decided to stop before finishing, or ran out of paint and tarmac.

Della Smith, who shared the picture with Cornwall Live, said the paint job gave her a chuckle. She said: "It's ridiculous they didn't fill in the hole next to it with some tarmac and at least painted the one stripe!”

She posted the photo on Facebook, saying: "Does anyone else find this amusing? You can hardly see the rest of the crossing but don't go all out and paint it all, will you lads?"

Other exasperated viewers thought it was "a joke" and "the funniest thing they've ever seen”.

The work is thought to have been carried out by Cormac, a company owned byCornwall Council .

The council were contacted for a comment.
