What is wrong with this picture?

That's right! Someone forgot to align the zebra crossing with the tactile paving. Or was it the other way round? And I suppose a crude DIY tarmac dropped kerb is better than none at all... Courtenay Place E17.

Meanwhile on Hoe Street, at the junction with Gaywood Road, all this new zebra crossing lacked was the stripes. The yellow beacons flashed for several weeks, apparently signalling the Council's indifference to the climate change credo not to waste electricity. But finally pots of white paint have been located and the crossing is now fit for purpose. Well done!
