You would've thought anyone with half a brain would've noticed...

Council bosses have admitted scoring an "own goal" after a fence was built through the middle of football goalposts in a park in York.



The new fencing was installed at a cost of £6,000 on playing fields in Heworth.

It was erected before £37,000 worth of new play equipment is phased in at the park over the next few weeks.

Dave Meigh, City of York Council's head of parks and open spaces, said: "We recognise that the failure to relocate the goalposts is a real own goal."

It has left local people who use the park to play football confused.

Mr Meigh said the council had asked the contractors to "resolve the issue as a matter of urgency and can only apologise for the error".

Local residents said it was "unreal" and a "waste of money".

Jane Hannon wrote on the BBC Look North Facebook page: "Typical example of too many chiefs and not enough Indians, one doesn't know what the other is doing. What a waste of time and money."

The new play area will be for children aged eight to 13.

It includes an aerial runway, a mega-basket swing, outdoor fitness equipment, a jungle climber and web traverse/balance equipment.
