A MAN who was in collision with a bus in Barns Road, Oxford, has been taken to hospital. 

A spokeswoman for Thames Valley Police said the incident happened at about 4.16pm in Barns Road, but the victim’s injuries are thought to be minor.

As a precaution, she added, he was taken to the John Radcliffe Hospital.

Officers from the force closed the road but it has now re-opened. 

Oxford Bus Company said on Twitter it was diverting five bus services via Watlington Road into Blackbird Leys.
