A BUS broke down at a busy Oxford roundabout and caused a queue of traffic.

The double-decker became stuck at the Littlemore Roundabout early this morning, causing tailbacks on the ring road along Eastern Bypass.

Westbound traffic travelling from Cowley towards Heyford Hill Roundabout was worst affected, and there were queues stretching back to the Oxford Retail Park roundabout.

Oxfordshire County Council tweeted about the incident at 7am and traffic remained severe until about 9.30am, but delays have now cleared.
