Can I move or remove a Naptan generated icon?

I have come across an incorrectly sited bus stop. It seemed easy enough to move it along the street to the right place, but on standard view the icon remains in the old position.

At the moment I am deciding between adding a second stop in the correct place, or leaving it as it is, with the Naptan stop in the wrong place. Neither is satisfactory.

Simply move it. Depending on which online map you are looking at (you don't say which) it will take minutes to days till the rendering is updated.

If you search on this site you will find that this is a very common questions that has been answered dozens of times.

Sorry! I did search before I posted, but perhaps I was being too specific. I didn't realise it was simply a delay in updating the image. As I recall, there is a message about it taking hours to update, but not days.

It would be good practice to mark tag it naptan:verified=yes to indicate it has been checked on site. Also, at the same time make sure the other on site stop information is correct (i.e. name, Naptan code, site, etc.). A photo helps the memory. Regards
