Signs across the county were changed by a group of campaigners opposed to Brexit.

Where before motorists would be politely informed they were entering the Garden of England – as Kent is known – the new message read: “Welcome to Kent The Toilet of England”.

They told the PA news agency: “We acted on behalf of the residents of Kent.

“Everyone who was involved in placing ‘Toilet’ on the road signs lives in Kent and we reject any suggestion that any damage was done to any of the road signs – the stickers can be removed very easily.
