Oxford signs defaced by vandals

Around 100 kerbside warning signs have been vandalised in Oxford over the last year.

Graham Jones, St Clements councillor, told the BBC that the notices were vandalised in order to ensure that traders in the area could park with freedom, ignoring the restrictions enforced in the area.

Mr Jones said that "vandal cheats" carried out the work, noting that it is a scandal that has "gone unnoticed".

Every sign costs roughly £60 to replace, and local resident Denise Clegg told the news provider how congestion was already making it a "nightmare" to park in the area.

"I suppose it's a sign of the times, there are many houses now that have more than one car," she told the news provider.

News of this vandalism follows a report by the Shields Gazette, which revealed how Hebburn motorists have called for South Tyneside Council to tackle drivers who flout no-entry warning signs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801449213-ADNFCR
