Enterprising residents of Larkhall have made an addition to the signs welcoming people to the town.

Underneath the signboard saying ‘Welcome to Larkhall’, a newly-erected sign reads: “Welcome to Larkhall. Except ISIS. You tw**s can f**k off.”

The South Lanarkshire town, around 14 miles from Glasgow, is twinned with the commune of Seclin in northern France, around 134 miles north of Paris.

The picture has been doing the rounds on social media since it was posted by @johnandlouie who captioned it ‘Brilliant!’, with one person writing: “Counter-terrorism budget cuts are really starting to take their toll” while another user joked: “Meanwhile the local neds of Larkhall have made their voice clear to ISIS.”

The new signpost has appeared as news emerged of Russian troops writing messages on bombs destined for IS targets in Syria, such as ‘For Paris!’ and ‘For Ours!’.
