TWO more low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) bollards have been vandalised in East Oxford over the weekend.

The controversial measures, which enable the use of giant plant pots and bollards to partially close off side roads, prevent through traffic as people are only able to walk, cycle or go through the area by wheelchair.

In the past few months, anti-LTN vandals have removed, damaged and even set the traffic filters on fire in Cowley and East Oxford.

The latest attack over the weekend has seen two bollards be removed by vandals on Marston Street and Rectory Road.

The Marston Street bollard has gone missing, while the one on Rectory Road was removed and dumped on the side of the road (pictured below).
