AN AIR ambulance landed in a residential road this afternoon.

The Thames Valley Air Ambulance helicopter, which is deployed by South Central Ambulance Service, rushed to Brereton Road in Wantage. 

It is thought the incident happened at around 3pm this afternoon.

Two weeks ago another air ambulance was deployed to Botley after a 13-year-old had died.

The road was closed off by police and other emergency services. 

Residents took to Facebook to warn others to avoid the area after taking a diversion themselves.

One person said they had to go via Newlands Drive, describing the scene as 'serious'.

Thames Valley Police and South Central Ambulance Service have been asked for a comment.
