Base station in disguise, gone wrong..

One of issues faced with operators around the world is getting planning permission for base stations. At least here in the UK, one of the most common designs is the base station disguised as a lamp post. They usually blend in nicely, the public don't even notice them and some even have a functioning lamp so they serve a practical purpose besides housing an antenna.

Sometimes however things go wrong as the photograph above shows. I wonder how many people notice that it is a bit strange to have two lamp posts separated by 1 metre. Clearly the traditional lamp post should be removed but I guess someone got a bit lazy..
