Three passengers were injured after a bus braked suddenly to avoid a cyclist on Botley Road yesterday.

Police and ambulance were called to the scene, by Osney Court, just after 9am to the Park and Ride bus.

A spokeswoman for South Central Ambulance Service said: “Three people were treated at the scene with what appear to be minor injuries.”

Oxford Bus Company spokesman Phil Ashworth said: “The driver performed an emergency stop when a cyclist pulled out in front of him. He did not hit the cyclist.”
