Everyone was asking ‘who’s Sue?’ yesterday when a police pilot posted a picture of ‘Sue x’ in huge letters in an Oxfordshire field.

And now we know the truth.

Mystery Sue has been revealed as the wife of contrite farmer Murray Graham who created the message as an apology.

He sprayed the giant letters by using a GPS-operated tractor to say sorry for ‘being moody’ but an eagle-eyed police pilot ruined the surprise before he could show her.

The couple’s son George is a pilot and the farmer wanted him to take a photo but the National Police Air Service beat him to it by tweeting ‘does anyone know Sue?’

Twitter and Facebook users quickly got to work and began tagging Murray and his wife into social media posts about the Thane mystery.

The Sun reported Murray, who has been married to Sue for 22 years, said: ‘I sprayed it the best part of two weeks ago – it takes a while for it to become apparent.

‘I said to George “When you’re down there see what you can see” and I didn’t tell him what it was.’

Son George said: ‘I suppose Dad wanted to express his love in the most creative way he could.

‘I don’t know if what he’s done is sufficient appeasement for mum, but it certainly caused a stir on social media.’

The farmer told BBC Radio Oxford that he wanted to prove to his wife of that ‘I’m not quite as grumpy and old as perhaps I make out occasionally.

‘As ever, everything has its ups and downs, so I thought I’d try and make a gesture at some point, and that was the one I chose.’
