Abertawe icWales:

A Welsh council has been condemned for removing bilingual roadsigns from a complex roundabout and replacing them with English-only ones.

Members of Cymdeithas yr Iaith said Swansea Council was “not practising what it preached” over its language policy.

A spokeswoman said, “Despite the fact the council has declared on many an occasion that they practise and wish to promote bilingualism within Swansea, in reality they are not.”

The bilingual signs at the busy Ynysforgan roundabout were changed for English-only signs in September.
