Beijing, Aug 11 (IANS) An English translation of a road sign in China made the police a laughing stock.

The police in Shangrao, a city in Jiangxi province, wanted to say “Call police if you have any trouble”, but the road sign in English actually said: “Difficult to find police.”

A snapshot was posted on and it attracted hundreds of comments, reported Shanghai Daily citing the Modern Express.

Some were of the opinion that the translation was actually true since police are hard to find when needed.

The translation was subsequently corrected.
