Has anyone else seen the creatively redesigned stop signs in se1? Very clever, seen a few around Tabard st and union st.

Anyone know who's behind doing them?

There are a few on Bermondsey Street too - I love them

I've been meaning to mention these for the last couple of weeks - I've seen similar things in other parts of London/the world but not on this scale and with this range of designs.

I really like them, but wonder how long until they're removed and replaced with official ones.

I really hope you don't drive a car Hutch, they are No Entry signs!
Saw one of these in Islington about a year ago and then spotted 2 last night on Webber Street. Now just spotted one on Grays Inn Road on the way to work.

You're right they are. Only ride a bike these days. And signs mean nothing to us! I joke of course!!

A sign at the north end of George Row has been 'bombed' and also one on Horselydown Rd. I'm on a mission to photograph them but between work and family I struggle to justify the importance of my pastimes!

It's funny the first time but they're not new - loads in the west end.

About 1/100 of the creativity of Banksy and of all the things in the street to choose, a vital piece of safety ... and they cost hundreds to replace.

Perhaps recolouring traffic lights or painting over pedestrian crossings will be their next flash of inspiration.

Preceded by 'I don't believe it'....
