A town dubbed "oppressive" because of its forest of signs telling people what not to do is to review its signage.

An online reviewer after visiting Dawlish in Devon wrote: "Absolutely everywhere I looked there was a sign telling me to comply in one way or another."

The signs include instructions not to feed birds, chase birds, keep dogs on leads and one that says feeding mouldy bread to ducks will poison them.

The reviewer on Trip Advisor fumed: "There are literally dozens and dozens of them - everywhere.

Dawlish mayor Councillor Martin Wrigley said he took on board the criticism and admitted there were too many signs.

Mr Wrigley told Sky News: "There are simply too many signs and we do need to reduce them and make them more positive.

"I would not say it is the bossiest place. The signs are asking people not to do certain things.

"But there has been a proliferation of the signs in recent years. I hope we will be looking at both reducing the signs and writing them in positive terms.

"For example, encouraging visitors to use duck food that we supply outside our waterfowl enclosure, rather than saying don't feed bread to the birds. Our black swans are a great attraction and people do like to feed them."

Dawlish made the national news when storms destroyed the rail line in the town in 2014.
