Oxford ox restored by cleaners

Oxford United’s ox statue has been cleaned up following vandalism last month.

The well-known statue outside the Kassam Stadium was daubed with pink paint and black graffiti, but fans have stepped in to put the damage right, reports the Oxford Mail.

Builder Shaun Bradford and his employees used power spray and chemical commercial cleaners to strip the statue.

After Builders Cleaning the statue had finished removing the paint it was back to its former glory. The process took six hours.

Shaun Bradford, a lifelong Oxford United fan said: “It is a lovely work of art and it was a real shame it was targeted…The substance we are using is environmentally friendly and just lifts the paint off.”

He was thanked for his actions by club chairman Kelvin Thomas, who added: “The fans have pulled together for the club and are even cleaning it for us.”

The statue originally cost £25,000 and was sponsored by three firms when it was first unveiled in 2008.
