WONKY road markings in Much Birch have left some drivers scratching their heads but Highways England said they are, in fact, intentional.

Ryan Wheatstone took these pictures when he was travelling as a passenger along the A49 Ross-on-Wye to Hereford road.

But a Highways England spokesman insist the road markings were painted deliberately that way and are part of a scheme.

Although unable to give further details at the time of going to press, she said there will be something going in the gap.
