A SMALL section of St Clement's Street in Oxford has been cordoned off by police after a man was found unconscious.

Police spokeswoman Lucy Billen said police were called just after 6.45am after the man was discovered unconscious in the street.

It is not yet known if he was the victim of an assault or if it was related to any May Morning festivities.

Police have cordoned off the area as a precaution while investigations continue, Mrs Billen said.

Anyone with information can call police on 101.

Ok so a drunken local/student falls over after 10 hours drinking on May Morning. So why the half road closure for over 4 hours? If there was a gun or knife the police would have found it in 5 minutes. Is it overtime they are after? Bringing the City to a standstill long after The Bridge was reopened was totally over the top. TVP you need to answer some serious questions.

I tried to get through at around 9.45. I counted eight policemen standing around the cordoned off area.

No they don't. You've just invented a scenario and then pretended it's real.

I think that you may find that my intuition was right in this instance. I spent the night on Cowley road and paced myself on Fosters, but saw most people knocking back the shots. There were many people unaware of what they were doing, and quite a few "casualties" in various gutters. You seem quite informed judging by your comment. Were you present Mr Robert?
