A PHOTO has emerged of low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) bollard being vandalised in Oxford.

The photo, sent to the Oxford Mail anonymously, shows a man jumping on top of the bollard in Bullingdon Road, off Cowley Road, this evening (10) at about 8.15pm.

It appears a blue car was waiting behind him to pass through once the bollard had been squashed.

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