A case of bad wind has led a shop in Farnborough to unintentionally advertise products of a different variety all together.

Farnborough Pool Supplies, in Osborne Rd, lost the first ‘L’ in its name thanks to strong winds on Saturday November 21.

The strong winds were part of a front of bad weather that swept across north east Hampshire over the weekend , bringing below-freezing temperatures and sleet in some areas.

The company’s website states the shop supplies swimming pool chemicals and maintenance equipment throughout the UK.

The shop added it ‘hopes to stick the ‘L’ back on soon’.

It isn't the first case of signs having unintended consequences, as a Yateley man was in uproar two years ago about a sign suggesting his house was a pub .
