Four custom-made UKIP signs were stolen from lamp posts less than 24 hours after they were put up.

The signs designed by Batley and Spen parliamentary candidate Aleks Lukic were taken from Oxford Road at Gomersal Hill Top and near St Peter’s Church, Hartshead.

Mr Lukic said: “Perhaps some just can’t contain their excitement for supporting UKIP and want to display my signs over the mantelpiece! Though I must say that leaving the cable ties on the poles is just plain bad manners.”

UKIP’s Liversedge and Gomersal candidate for Kirklees Council, Simon Holbrook, said: “Fortunately we still have plenty of time to replace the signs over the next few weeks.

“We might consider submitting a Guinness World Record entry for the speedy removals!”
