Schoolboy Designs Fireworks Giant In Oxfordshire

Guy Fawkes 2

A picture drawn by a 10-year-old boy will be used to create a 12-metre wicker figure to be set alight at Oxford's South Park.

Reuben Morris-Dyer's image of a tribal warrior was selected from more than a thousand entries for the competition to design the structure.

Artist Dan Barton said the figure would take six weeks to build.

It will then go on display around Oxfordshire ahead of the Round Table Fireworks Display in November.

Mr Barton said: "It's a fantastic design and will look spectacular. We can get schoolchildren involved in helping to build it and may put it near the M40."

Reuben, a pupil at Stanford in the Vale Primary School, said he was delighted to win but will have mixed feelings in November.

"I know it will have to get burnt but it is a bit of a shame. I guess it couldn't last forever," he added
