Victory parade for Oxford United on Tuesday night

The open top bus parade route

Oxford United will hold an open top bus parade across the city tomorrow evening.

Fans be able to cheer on their newly-promoted team tomorrow at 5pm on Tuesday (10th May).

The bus will start the parade from Broad Street and finish at Oxford Town Hall around 5.30. There will be rolling d closures on the rest of the parade route through the city centre.

Oxford United sealed promotion to Sky Bet League One after beating Wycombe Wanderers 3-0 at the Kassam Stadium.

The last time the side celebrated a promotion with an open top bus parade was in 2010 after securing promotion from the Conference.

“We have had a brilliant season and this is a great opportunity for everyone to celebrate together."

Fatberg problem - Don't just throw it down the drain

This is what happens when fat is not disposed of properly

The water supplier Thames Water says it has finally found out why Oxford has such a big problem with 'fatbergs'.

When collating the results of a recent survey the firm found that around 80 percent of the city's restaurants were not using fat traps to stop oil and grease spilling into Oxford's sewers. Therefore, the fat collects in the sewer and drains below the city streets and creates the huge, solid deposits, otherwise known as fatbergs.

Earlier this year, a 20 tonne blockage was removed from one drain in the city centre. Kate Bunkall's report explains what happened. The interviewee is Alex Saunders from Thames Water.

Oxford is the UK's least affordable city - according to a new report. The average house price of £364,000 is nearly 11 (10.68) times the gross average salary in the city. That's more expensive compared with average earnings than in any other UK city. The report says this is partly due to Oxford's attractiveness to commuters working in London.

Winchester (10.54), London (10.06), Cambridge (9.9) and Bath (9.77) make up the top five least affordable cities. Winchester was recently named by the Sunday Times as the "best place to live" in the UK.
