A CAR ended up in a ditch yesterday after a crash which closed the B4011 near Blackthorn.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service said the crash involved two cars, with one coming off the road and ending up in a ditch with significant damage to the front.

Crews from both Bicester and Kidlington were called to the rural crash and a passing firefighter on his way to work was able to pull over and help before crews arrived.

It happened about 5.35pm and closed the road throughout the evening while the wreckage was recovered.

The fire service added that South Central Ambulance Service treated three people involved at the scene.
