A crane is blocking the Woodeaton Road in East Oxfordshire after rolling off the road last night.

It's understood the crane was driving down the road around 6pm when the verge gave way causing it to topple over.

The Environment Agency say the crane is not contaminating the nearby Bayswater Brook despite containing 60 litres of fuel.

Traffic diversion remains in place while police and the crane's operators try to right the crane.
