THEY can spell mozzarella and pepperoni but when it comes to Ipswich street names, one pizza company has proved they're far from hot.

Pizza Hut, well known for a variety of interesting toppings, has come up with an equally interesting menu of spellings on a leaflet promoting pizza delivery in the Ipswich area.

If you spot a bemused delivery driver looking for Wang Street, Butter Street or Turet Street you'll know they've been looking at the not-so hot and spicy spellings on a restaurant locator map delivered to hundreds of homes across town.

On the map, such famous Ipswich street names as Princes Street becomes Princess Street, Turret Lane becomes Turet Street and St Nicholas Street becomes St Nichol Street.

Well known roads, Dog's Head Street and Falcon Street are no more, according to Pizza Hut, for they've been renamed the far more food-orientated Butter Street.

Even Tacket Street has been taken over by Orwell Place.

This is probably a mix up with the Buttermarket, but best of all is an entirely new street name.

In the Pizza Hut world, just off Foundation Street in the town centre, is Wang Street, an Oriental sounding street which one can only assume is supposed to be Wingfield Street.

While there is no doubting the company slogan "Great Pizzas, Great Times" it clearly seems someone is not too great at spelling.

When The Evening Star tried to order a pizza for Wang Street from the Upper Brook Street branch, a bemused manager admitted they didn't know where the street was and bizarrely claimed that none of their leaflets contained maps on them.

A Pizza Hut spokesman said: "Pizza Hut is grateful for the feedback and we will instruct our printers to make amendments to the map at the next possible opportunity. We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience."
