A RAMSEY resident is protesting about a supermarket sign that was put up outside his house indicating the way to the new Tesco store...when no sign exists for the Co-operative supermarket.
John Groom, of the Great Whyte, said he has been a customer at the Co-op for 20 years and that he was "furious".
He told The Hunts Post: "I think it is so wrong. I have been shopping at the Co-op since it opened 20 years ago. You go straight on to Tesco and turn right for the Co-op but the arrow next to the sign says straight ahead. I wonder if the manager of the Co-op store is as livid as I am. It is unjust."
A spokesman for the Tesco store in Ramsey said: "This is not something we control - this kind of signage is erected by the county council."

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire County Council said: "This sign was something that Tesco applied for and paid for. Putting up a sign is a normal practice near many of its stores. If the Co-op wanted a sign, it would have to apply.
