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.
