While details were being exchanged, a second man approached them and showed a black wallet stating he was an off-duty police officer.

He then looked into one of the vehicles before both he and the man who walked into the road left separately towards Banbury Road.

The man who stated he was an off-duty police officer is described as white, with a dark beard and around 5ft 7in tall.

He was thought to be wearing a black cap and black Parka-style jacket.
