A village road has been closed after a large hole appeared.

Part of Oxford Road in Garsington, Oxfordshire is shut for safety reasons after some of the surface collapsed.

The hole was not strictly a sinkhole as it did not appear to be "naturally occurring", a Thames Water spokeswoman said. The cause is not yet known.

Engineers are at the scene conducting investigations before carrying out repairs. Thames Travel said its bus services would be affected.

A spokesman from Oxfordshire County Council said: "We have closed this section of Oxford Road for safety reasons and are speaking with Thames Water in order to identify the cause and carrying out repairs as soon as possible."
