That'll be 'the world's local bank'

Priceless story in the Norwich Evening News,
There were red faces all round when a high street bank unveiled its new look in Lowestoft town centre.

The HSBC bank, in London Road North, has undergone a major transformation but the new sign above the main entrance caused a stir among customers when it was put up last week because its message read “Welcome to Lowerstoft”.

Paul Sheldrake, public manager at HSBC - which refers to itself as the world's local bank - offered his apologies to the people of Lowestoft.
Whoops.
