SHOPPERS in Wales have been left tongue-tied and baffled after a store installed new signs in Scottish Gaelic instead of Welsh.

Welsh language tutor Jonathan Ford spotted the signs at the Bedwas Co-operative in Caerphilly county after its £360,000 refit. He said the mistake made him laugh but that some Welsh speakers would be "cross".

A Co-operative spokesman said: "We will remove these signs and replace them as soon as possible. We would like to thank the customer for pointing this out."
