Ladygrove Road was shut in both directions this evening, and will remain closed tomorrow.

Initially Abingdon Road was also shut in both directions, but the closure has since been shortened just to affect Ladygrove.

Ladygrove Road was closed between Sires Hill and the A4130.

Traffic appeared to be coping well despite the disruption.

Oxfordshire County Council said the gas main had 'ruptured,' and warned that the road closure will cause issues to 'peak morning traffic.'
