RAGING residents have demanded Prince Andrew is removed from their street’s name after the disgraced duke’s rape allegations.
Locals on Prince Andrew Drive in Telford, Shropshire, say it “isn’t right” that the name stays due to the Duke of York’s links to paedo Jeffrey Epstein.

Ms Giuffre, now 38, has filed a battery and infliction of emotional distress lawsuit against Andrew.
Andrew has always strongly denied all allegations made against him.
One resident on Prince Andrew Drive told the Shropshire Star that they are considering writing to the council to demand his name be removed.
The local – who asked not to be named – said: “We think it should change.
“We’ve been thinking about writing to them. It’s not right that it’s named after him.”

Others suggested the street should keep the royal theme – but be renamed after one of the Cambridges children.
He said: “I wouldn’t mind seeing the back of that name.
“There’s another street near here called Sussex Close. I wouldn’t want to live there either.
“It needs to have a royal connection. Maybe they could name it after Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis.”
It was this week revealed that Prince Andrew will join the Queen at a remembrance service for Prince Philip.
It will come just days after Andrew, 61, is due to give his witness statement to US lawyers in his sex abuse case.
But Prince Harry has not confirmed if he will fly back from California to join other royals.
He is suing the Government for not allowing him to pay for police protection after his taxpayer-funded security was withdrawn.
The event is one of three “back-to-work” dates the Queen, 95, has next month following her health scare in October.
