Oxford Mail: Maria Parsons pictured with the banner Maria Parsons pictured with the banner

A thief has stolen a banner made by volunteers to advertise their Canal Heritage Day at the weekend.

Project manager for the Oxford Canal Heritage Project Maria Parsons, designed and securely fastened it to Hythe Bridge on Sunday.

But it was found to be missing this week.

She said: “I feel really miserable. It took me all last week to design it.”

The banner detailed events about the history and culture of the Oxford Canal at the Old Fire Station on Saturday.

Did they have a licence for attaching the banner to the site?

Oxford City Council is very strict on enforcement when it comes to fly-posting.

Noticed all the plastic ties on the bridge today, hope she is going to remove said litter.

We did have a licence - Councillor Colin Cook and Doug Moggeride ( City Streetscene Manager) were instrumental in getting us permission to display our banner. Fortunately it did not spoil the Canal Open Day on Saturday which was very successful. All's well that ends well but I remain really curious about where it ended up!
