Drivers 'ignoring' road signs 'putting lives at risk'

Motorists ignoring road closures signs are putting lives at risk in a village in Oxfordshire, it has been claimed.

Some villagers in Wantage are having to retrieve signs thrown into hedges by motorists who do not want to follow a diversion.

Part of the A417 is closed for work to demolish and rebuild a railway bridge at Challow.

Trudie Ball, who uses the country lane to take her horses from their stables to a field, said cars were sometimes leaving "inches" when passing the animals.
