THAMES Valley Police teamed up with Oxford Bus Company last week to make sure people were wearing masks when travelling by bus.

The police force said on its Twitter page: "Officers from Oxford teamed up with colleagues at Oxford Bus Company to make sure people are doing all they can to keep others safe by wearing a face mask.

"We're pleased to say that everyone we spoke to was doing a great job.

"Thank you for all you are doing to protect each other."

Face coverings on public transport were made mandatory back in June of last year.
