One woman, who wished  to remain anonymous, told the Oxford Mail as of Saturday morning, at least five vehicles were parked near trees.

Angry residents took to Facebook page Spotted: Didcot last night over vandalism of a stone snake created near Ladygrove park.

One person wrote under a post about travellers seen in the area: "I have just been up on the mount and witnessed a young boy literally smashing all the rocks that all the children around here have worked so hard to paint."

Another added they had seen the rocks had been destroyed, writing: "Shocking! So disrespectful! I am so sad for the kids that have put so much effort into painting these rocks.

"It was a whole community project, meant to bring a bit of joy during this Covid madness, but all that spirit is now ruined!"

Thames Valley Police has confirmed it has received a report about a rock display being damaged.
