An Oxfordshire village has closed its high street to motor vehicles.

Traffic is no longer allowed in the new pedestrianised area in the centre of Kidlington between 10:00 and 16:30.

The car-free area stretches from Watts Way to Oxford Road. Blue badge holders, cyclists and deliveries will be permitted outside these hours.

Kidlington Parish Council said a full consultation was carried out and the new rules would mean a more pleasant environment for shoppers.
