Road sign leaves Welsh-speakers bewildered

`Welsh-speaking cyclists have been left baffled – and possibly concerned for their health – after a bizarre translation mix-up.

For instead of a road sign telling them to dismount, the Welsh translation informs them that ‘bladder disease has returned’.

The temporary sign, placed in front of the roadworks at Barons Court roundabout between Penarth and Cardiff, correctly says ‘cyclists dismount’ in English, but says ‘llid y bledren dymchwelyd’ in Welsh.’
