Two cars were ruined outside the Iffley Athletics track this afternoon around 2.45pm. Oxfordshire Fire Service said this evening the cause was unknown, but arson has been ruled out.

Traffic and pedestrians were held back by the police as thick smoke from burning tyres filled the air. A fire crew wearing breathing equipment quickly extinguished both vehicles, and the road reopened shortly afterwards.
