"DANGEROUS" drivers have been spotted ignoring road signs in order to drive through a CLOSED level crossing.

One driver was spotted moving a temporary "road closed" sign in order to continue through the crossing on Frost Lane, Hythe.

A resident, who lives near to the crossing, described the actions as "dangerous and stupid".

They said: "We have had notice that the level crossing at the end of Frost Lane – Shore Road in Hythe would be closed for maintenance.

"However there has been signs put up today closing the road.

"But cars and buses have been driving straight through.

"This is really stupid and dangerous."
