A football team in Norway got a nasty shock when they returned for pre-season training after the winter break.
Amateur side Ny Krohnborg IL arrived to find a road had been built over their pitch.
During the winter break, workers laid a thoroughfare to a new psychiatric hospital at Helse Bergen Unitversity, running roughshod over Krohnborg's articificial turf.
Krohnborg chairman Radney Thomsen said: "We were quite shocked when we discovered that the path had been laid. The start of the season is just around the corner, but no one told us. We feel simply run over."
Incredibly, the same thing happened three years ago when the pitch was reduced by several metres to make way for a new road.
Thomsen added: "It's downright scary that the various sports clubs that use the path have not been told. It is lower than low.
"They have 'forgotten' to give notice for the second time in three years. This is not good enough."
Roar Andersen, the managing director of the local sports council, also expressed his dismay, asking: “How can they go ahead with cutting path without informing us?
"There are several teams that have league matches here. I thought everyone agreed that the road shouldn't be this shape."
On the bright side, if Krohnborg ever need to 'park the bus' against superior opposition, they now have a road on which to do it.
