A man and a woman were taken to Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital yesterday after their car crashed into the centre of a Bicester roundabout.

The incident happened at about 8.45am at Bicester Avenue roundabout on the A41.

The pair, who were in a black Vauxhall Astra, sustained minor injuries.

A spokeswoman for Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service said the vehicle had also leaked fuel on to the road which was cleared by crews. Thames Valley Police said the roundabout was cleared by about 12.15pm.
