Who is the person adding and removing apostrophes and commas to signs in Bristol?

The identity of a man who corrects punctuation errors on signs in the Bristol area has not been published, but he has spoken to the BBC about his mission to remove incorrect apostrophes where they appear, and to add them where they are missing. He does this with stickers or with a paint pad at the end of a stick. He said: "I do think it's a cause worth pursuing."
