Over 10 police officers raced to one of Oxford’s busiest streets after a late night incident.

The incident occurred shortly before 10.30pm on Friday when Thames Valley Police officers raced to Cowley Road.

Police cars and a van could be spotted parked outside the O2 Academy as an area was taped off from the public.

An ambulance also arrived with several paramedics on the scene working with the police.

Flashing blue lights could be seen from quite some distance from the scene as the busy street was ground to a halt as emergency services got to work.

Officers and paramedics were concentrated around the pavement outside of Sundaes Gelato which sits opposite the O2 Academy.

Neither entity has yet confirmed the reason for their presence but the Oxford Mail has approached Thames Valley police for further comment.
