Farmers' markets are returning to west Oxfordshire following the relaxation of foot and mouth controls.

Carterton, Chipping Norton and Witney are hosting monthly events throughout the summer, beginning with a market at Witney's Church Green on May 17.

Mary Neale, district council cabinet spokesman, said: "We hope they will return with the same level of success and public support as before." Chipping Norton's first market is on May 25. The council is advising stallholders to disinfect equipment until further notice.

The Carterton markets will run from 8am to 1pm on May 26, June 30, July 28 and August 25 in Black Bourton Road.
