A local near the Evenlode pub in Eynsham has described signage in the area as insensitive.

Many individuals stand by the Evenlode pub as a mark of respect to fallen soldiers with repatriations but, two weeks ago, Oxfordshire County Council erected signs that tell them to stay off the road amid safety worries, according to the Oxford Mail.

Council spokesman Paul Smith told the newspaper: "The signs that have been put up are just a very gentle reminder that people should keep themselves safe while attending repatriations."

However, Eynsham resident Pam Powell believes that the signs are insensitive and a "total insult" to soldiers and their families.

Signage was also recently introduced by the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership, which aims to lower the number of motorcyclists injured on the region's roads. Bike shops will also include displays to explain why the move has been made.

Two notices have been erected, which read "beware bikers" and "think bike, look twice".ADNFCR-2754-ID-801364146-ADNFCR
