AFTER the UK public named a multi-million pound polar research vessel Boaty McBoat face you would think public christenings would be off the cards.

But an Ikea store in Valladolid once again thrust control into the public’s hands and asked them to name the street behind the shop.

More than one thousand people voted in a Facebook poll, with 54% of voters backing the winning entry.

Thus, Calle Me Falta un Tornillo, or I’m Missing a Screw Street, will now become an official address in the North West city.

The street name eluding to the frustration many customers feel when assembling flat pack furniture beat off many other suggestions, including There’s No Place Like Home Street and Hug on the Couch Street. 

Usually local councils will decide the names given to Spanish street but the Swedish multinational were able to name the road as they had boguht the land on which it lies.
