A car towing a caravan and driving the wrong way on the M40 has been involved in a crash with another vehicle.

It was travelling south on the northbound carriageway when it crashed at about 16:00 BST on Monday.

The road was closed between junction 6 for Watlington and junction 8A for Oxford, and reopened at about 07:00.

The air ambulance was dispatched by South Central Ambulance Service, but no details of any injuries have been released.

Thames Valley Police is now appealing for motorists with dashcam footage to come forward.
