A motorcyclist and an 84-year-old man were still in hospital last night after separate road accidents earlier this week.

The pensioner suffered a head injury in a collision with a car in Gainsborough Green, Abingdon, on Monday evening and the motorcyclist was injured when he came off his bike on the A361 at Swerford, between Banbury and Chipping Norton on Tuesday.

Thames Valley Police spokeswoman Rhianne Pope said the motorcyclist did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
