Street sign in Tunbridge Wells directs drivers to wrongly spelt town of Tonbridge

A well-known Kent town has been re-branded by a rogue street sign. 

The sign outside Royal Victoria Place shopping centre, in Tunbridge Wells, has amused passers-by with its spelling mistake. 

It points left to Brighton and right to "Tonbrige", more commonly known as Tonbridge.

Bruce Grant, who took the picture, said: "I just found it quite amusing that so many people drive past it and probably don't spot it."
