THE unusual sight of the Union flag flying on Wexford Bridge was too much for someone in the town over the weekend.

However, an attempt to destroy the emblem failed, with only a series of singe marks marking the banner being flown on the bridge as part of European Flag Day.

Gardai said they had not received any reports of the attempt to burn the flag, but the evidence was there for all to see on Monday morning.

None of the other EU flags along the bridge were touched.
