Another new finger post incorrectly aligned

Further to my similar report yesterday, I have noticed that another new Legible London finger post has been installed with its fingers pointing in the wrong directions.

This one, located at the corner of Hackney Road and Cremer Street, seeks to direct people to locations grouped in the following three sets:

- Columbia Road, Hackney City Farm, Haggerston Park - Hoxton Market (sic -- should be Hoxton Street Market), Hoxton overground station, Hackney University Technical College, Hackney Community College - St. Leonard's Church, Shoreditch Town Hall

In each case the groups of fingers are approximately 90 degrees out clockwise (as seen from above).

This obviously needs correcting.

It looks as if a site visit might be required to all finger posts recently installed in the borough to check them and make any necessary further corrections are necessary.

It also might be a good idea, when new finger posts are being installed, for someone to be present who has knowledge of the area. Legible London is an admirable programme. The fewer mistakes in it, the better!
