Regina sign-hackers have struck again, this time adding an f-bomb to an illuminated sign in a construction zone just south of the city.

For a while early Monday morning, motorists heading into Regina on Highway 6 saw a sign that read: AH F--K EH — with the full profanity displayed. 

The sign is under the province's jurisdiction.

Crews fixed the sign around 8 a.m. CST.

A prankster pulled a similar move inside the city last year. At that time, city officials said it was no laughing matter and they were treating the case as vandalism.
