People in Oxford are being warned some of the main roads are closed for the day as a big cycling event comes to the city for the first time.

Some of the country's top teams and riders are taking part in round 3 of the Halford's Tour Series 

Over the course of an hour of fast paced racing, teams will be battling to place their riders as high as possible in the finishing positions in order to gain their maximum squad points.

Roads affected are St Giles, Magdalen Street East and Magdalen Street West, as well as parts of Banbury Road, Beaumont Street, St John Street to St Giles, and Pusey Street at its junction with St Giles. 

Affected bus services will operate via Broad Street, and Taxis from Beaumont Street.
