PART of the Westgate car-park in Oxford was earlier closed off by police after reports of suspicious activity. 

Thames Valley Police said they received a report, but couldn't say what it was about. 

Tim Firth, 27, from Abingdon was walking back from work when he saw the police cordon. 

He said: "It was between the car-park and the underpass. There was a police van there and what looked like a security officer. 

"And on the lower section of the car-park there was police tape. I couldn't see any cars or people."
