Cornwall, a popular tourist destination in England, relies heavily on visitors extra cash for the neighborhood economy, The Sun reports. Some residents, however, apparently don’t feel the in an identical way as they reportedly hung a sign using one of the region’s main bridges rudely telling tourists to leave.
The sign reportedly said, “Turn around and f— off.”

The county that Cornwall is found had a somewhat low number of instances of the herpes virus, with only 887 confirmed cases and 91 deaths.
Malcolm Bell told The Sun, “We are battling to save thousands of jobs. Let’s welcome our customers, who will share their money to keep Cornish people in jobs. I don’t like to see signs like the one we saw on the A30. It is being offensive to a large group of people. I find it unforgivable.”
In Devon, another area popular with tourists, a man was reportedly spotted wearing a grim reaper costume and holding a sign that read, “Welcome holidaymakers.” In that case, however, two other men allegedly arrived and seized the sign from him.
