- PM's former school headteacher slams education 'segregation'
- A34 group meets to discuss road safety improvements
There's slow traffic on the A4165 Banbury Road northbound in Oxford between the B4495 Marston Ferry Road junction and the Cutteslowe Roundabout.
A Thames Valley Police officer has been cleared of breaching the standards of professional behavior, following a misconduct hearing yesterday.
PC Neil Budd, who is based at Banbury police station, was cleared of discreditable conduct and dishonesty.
The allegation related to the alteration of a handwritten record of an interview, conducted with a man in relation to a road traffic collision.
The panel concluded that the case was not proven and PC Budd will now return to full duty.
The new study sets out the case for an Oxford to Cambridge expressway, creating a dual carriageway from the M1 at Milton Keynes and the M40 near Oxford.
Bridget Fox, Sustainable Transport Campaigner, Campaign for Better Transport said the plan was a "disappointing" return to the "policies of the past".
She said: "Oxford and Cambridge have pioneered transport policies based on providing alternatives to car dependency. To build new road connections drawing more traffic into the area risks undermining their achievements."
The leader of Abingdon town council has responded to allegations by teenagers that they received homophobic insults while campaigning in the town centre yesterday.
Mike Badcock said he wanted to reassure all people in the town they were "valued members of our community".
I note that the alleged incidents have been linked to our decision regarding the flying of the rainbow flag. I am extremely disappointed that the reasons for the council's decision in this regard continue to be misinterpreted, it would appear wilfully by some. We would always advise that where there are any such incidents they should always be reported to the police.
Oxfordshire County Council has estimated that about 95% of students have gained two or more A-Levels at the A* to E pass rate in the county.
This would be close to the 2015 figure - 94.5% - although the confirmed results will be published later in the year.
The political leadership around Oxfordshire has "failed" after £200,000 was spent on rival reports into changing the structure of the county's local government.
Andrew Gant, the Liberal Democrat leader at Oxford City Council, described the exercise as an "expensive shambles".
Two reports commissioned by the county and district councils said a consensus was needed between the opposing sides.
The leader of Oxford City Council is reported to have said hopes for a reorganisation were now "dead".
Sophie Rooney is running the entire length of Scandinavia.
The woman from Banbury is doing it to raise money for three charities; The Stroke Association, UK Mountain Rescue and the Thomas Thyer Foundation.
She's travelling the whole 3,000km through Norway, Sweden and Denmark by herself and carrying all her own kit.
I have made the decision to give it my 100%.
There's queuing traffic for one mile on the A40 in both directions at the Cutteslowe Roundabout in the roadworks area.
The congestion goes back to the Wolvercote Roundabout and on the A44 Woodstock Road to the Peartree Interchange.
Oxford United tasted defeat on the road for the second successive game after going down 2-0 at Fleetwood in League One.
United have picked up just a single point from their three games so far and boss Michael Appleton acknowledges that his players need to show more belief and do some of the basics right.
It's a lack of confidence, but we're also not aggressive enough. The type of goals we're conceding are too easy. We know what we need to address. They need to learn quicker from their mistakes and we're a little bit thin in terms of numbers. But once we address those issues, I'll be a lot happier.
A government study has said a "brain belt" expressway between Oxford and Cambridge could boost the UK economy.
The Department for Transport has published the results of an investigation into linking existing roads between the two cities, via Bedford and Milton Keynes.
It says upgrading the network and addressing gaps could improve journey times by up to 30 minutes.
And the study warns a failure to act could "constrain economic growth".
Part of a new £6.7m road junction in Oxford is to be repaired and altered less than a year after completion, to prevent further damage by vehicles.
A kerb at Frideswide Square had to be repaired in May as bus companies said it was impossible for them to navigate the junction with out mounting a paved area.
Oxfordshire County Council said the kerb outside the Royal Oxford Hotel will be realigned and strengthened during two weeks of work starting next Monday.
This was an innovative, complex scheme and it is not unexpected that minor alterations and repairs are necessary following a period of bedding in.
You will have little trouble finding a luxury Swiss watch in London's West End... but British-made timepieces are much harder to come by.
One of the few purveyors is Bremont. It employs around 30 watchmakers at a workshop in Henley-on-Thames.
We went along to see why they're turning back the clock to a golden age of British watchmaking.
Melinda Tilley from Oxfordshire County Council said gifted and talented children were being let down by the current ban on new grammar schools.
There is nothing wrong with selection. People say we must do more to help pupils with special educational needs, but no one says we should do more for the gifted and talented. People assume they will just make it in life, but without giving them something more that's not necessarily the case. We are letting down a whole group of young people that we shouldn't be letting down.
The headteacher of the prime minister's former school has been speaking about why she is opposed to potential plans to introduce new grammar schools.
Kate Curtis said it would be bad idea to "go down the road of segregating, of selecting and identifying" children at the age of 11 because it would be "very damaging for those that are outside the grammar school system".
It's an arbitrary age in which to select. In some ways it's too late because for those that are really disadvantaged, some of the damage has already been done, and in another sense it's far too young because you don't know what their future growth and development might be. To segregate groups of young people at any stage with physical walls between them is a mistake. There should always be the opportunity for fluid learning.
Oxfordshire's farmers are facing a battle to root out an invasive weed that's proving resistant to herbicides.
Black Grass has been described as the number one problem in weed control for UK growers by researchers at Newcastle University.
They say resistance is creeping across the country and herbicides are becoming less effective.
The answer is clever farming. We've always had chemcials to treat these problems. But nature has had enough of us using chemicals and now it's beating us.
The decline of wild bees in England is being linked to controversial pesticides used on crops.
Neo-nico-tinoids are currently under a two year ban in the EU because of concerns over their negative impact on bees.
Now, researchers at Wallingford's Centre for Ecology and Hydrology say they've found evidence that agrees.
The headteacher of Theresa May's old school, which was a grammar school in the Prime Minister's time, has said making more selective schools would be a "big mistake".
The Sunday Telegraph said the PM was planning to scrap the ban on grammar schools to boost "social mobility".
Kate Curtis at Wheatley Park School in Oxfordshire said young people would miss out if they were "segregated".
Melinda Tilley, from Oxfordshire County Council, said there was "nothing wrong" with selection.
It will be rather cloudy at times through the day with the odd light shower here and there. The cloud will thin and break in places though to give some warm bright or sunny spells. Highs of 24C (75F).
More must be done to prevent the number of fatal crashes on the A34 between Hampshire and Oxfordshire, campaigners have said.
The A34 Action Group was set up following the deaths of a mother and three children during an eight-vehicle-crash between Chieveley and East Ilsley, in Berkshire, on 10 August.
About 50 people attended the group's first public meeting on Wednesday.
Group organisers said "too many lives" had been lost on the road.
