I was told that a vehicle was set alight on this footbridge, in Southern Town Park, back in January 2012. The bridge is on the route to the Drayton Road Allotments and used by people getting to the allotments or out on walks.
The tape and bollards, put up at the footbridge after the incident, are gone. People have found other ways round for the moment. I can see a track has been trod across sports fields which used to be fenced off and free from dogs. I hear the Vale of White Horse District Council have it scheduled to repair in April 2012. The sports club and people going that way will be very glad when the footbridge finally gets mended, so the sooner the better.
