Commuters spotted the plinth had been removed by a car transporter during Tuesday morning.

Shortly before 9am the bollard was sent tumbling and pedestrians gathered to carry it the short distance to the kerb.

The bollards were installed as part of the £3.4million shared space scheme in Fishergate during late 2014.

Since then drivers have struggled to ensure they don’t hit the concrete pillars.

A Twitter account, set up for the original Fishergate bollard, has become a staple of Preston’s social media scene with its pithy tweets.
