Following reports of vehicles contravening the 'No Entry' road traffic signs in Nethercote, Banbury, the Banbury Neighbourhood Team conducted a patrol and turned around 120 vehicles in 90 minutes

The No Entry sign is there to protect the villagers. This is a single track road, which is not designed or appropriate for use as a short cut.

Officers posted the following message on the TVP Cherwell Facebook page about the issue: "We appreciate the traffic issues on the A422 are causing delays but would advise you to allow extra time for your journey or find an alternative route.

"Driving though a No Entry sign is not the answer, and could have resulted in fines of £3600 if officers had not issued warnings/advice.

Thank you, stay safe, drive safely."
