A cyclist has died from his injuries nearly three weeks after being violently attacked in central Oxford.

Eamonn Anderson, 56, suffered head injuries when he was kicked off his bike by a group of six young men in High Street late on Tuesday 25 October.

Thames Valley Police has started a murder investigation.

Mr Anderson was taken to hospital by ambulance, but died of his injuries at John Radcliffe Hospital on Friday evening.

Det Ch Insp Mike Lynch, of Thames Valley Police's Major Crime Unit, said: "This was a violent attack, which initially left the victim with serious head injuries, and has now tragically led to his death."

Police described it as an "isolated incident".
