New signs to Nottingham's key attractions are going up around the city centre.

They will replace the variety of markings that are confusing tourists and pedestrians.

The signs that point to Nottingham's main attractions are currently a mixture of colours and designs, some even point in the wrong direction.

The replacements are all silver, and easier to read and have been designed so vandals cannot turn them around.

New destinations like the Ice Arena, the canal side and tram stops will also be signposted.

The whole operation is costing around 200,000.
