That's no lady

Organisers of the Noah's Ark appeal of Wales were left red-faced after the unveiling of a sign for a street in Cardiff named after the appeal's patron, Shirley Bassey.

It carried a misspelling of the Welsh word for Dame.


Apparently, instead of Y Fonsig, it should have read Y Fonesig.

Knowing Welsh as well as I do (ahem), the incorrect spelling probably translates to something like 'that old Tiger Bay bird'.
