A SOLITARY violinist provided a moment of Monday motivation earlier as his tuneful melodies rang out over Oxford's river. 

This video was taken by our reporter Fran Way as she walked back from work to the railway station earlier. 

In a quintessentially Oxford scene, the barefooted performer practiced a jaunty jig while sitting on the steps of Osney Lock, by the River Thames.
