Tourist attraction boss 'told to re-word Gaza sign by police' after putting it up alongside A5

The man in charge of a Shropshire visitor attraction says police told him to re-word a sign opposing the bloodshed in Gaza following a complaint.

Clive Knowles with the sign he has been advised to reword

Clive Knowles, chairman of the British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry, had put a large sign up at the site, off the A5.

The sign carried the message 'Stop the Genocide in Gaza', and had a number of metal skulls above the wording.

But following a complaint from a member of the public who reported the sign as offensive, police visited the centre.
