Residents no longer butt of jokes

Residents who were fed-up living in Butt Hole Road have finally had the name changed.
The street which houses four homes in Conisbrough, South Yorkshire, has now been renamed Archer Way.
The road was named after a communal water butt used centuries ago.
Peter Sutton, who has lived on the street for six years said he got bored of all the jokes.
Pranksters used to visit the street and bare their backsides for photographs while delivery firms refused to believe it existed.
Elizabeth Brennan, 77, who uses the street for access to her home said it was a bit tedious having the street laughed at all the time. The new name is much nicer."
However, an internet petition to get the name changed back again has already started.
