A sign seen by motorists on the way into Mansfield has been vandalised.

Anyone traveling into Mansfield via Southwell Road West will recognise him - the mustachioed, wonky-eyed man on a St Andrew's Healthcare poster, promoting careers at the mental health unit in Sherwood Avenue.

Some weeks ago the advertising board fell victim to what some may describe as ruthless vandals, childish louts, even brutish paper-clipping attackers.

But the cutout eyes and moustache, appearing almost to be a pair of paper Groucho glasses, or like a dis-proportioned Mr Potato Head - gives us a smile as we come into work in the morning.
