A Cornish village has angered the Jewish community after agreeing to reinstate a sign saying Hitlers Walk.

The sign for a park overlooking Mevagissey was taken down by the now-defunct Restormel Council in 2005 after complaints that it was inappropriate.

Now Mevagissey Parish Council has ordered a new sign, saying that is what local people call the park.

Harvey Kurzfield, of Kehillat Kernow, which represents the Jewish community of Cornwall, said it was “outrageous”.

The park, on a sloping site a little smaller than a football pitch at the top of Polkirt Hill, was named in the 1930s after a dictatorial local councillor, who was nicknamed Hitler.
