An elderly man is battling to save his life after he was hit by a tourist coach in Windsor on Saturday.

The 90-year-old suffered a serious head injury in an incident by the turning circle at 12.45pm at Windsor Coach Park in Alma Road.

He was airlifted to John Radcliffe Hospital, in Oxford, by air ambulance where he remains in a serious condition and is fighting for his life.

His wife, who is 80, also sustained a minor head injury in the accident, and was kept in at Wexham Park Hospital overnight. She was discharged yesterday.

The couple were believed to have been walking through the coach park to their car, when they were hit by a coach that was turning around.

It had just dropped off passengers.

Police arrested a Spanish driver from a coach company in his homeland at the scene and he has been bailed until March 2.

Coach park entrances were cordoned off while paramedics treated the couple, who are believed to be from Surrey.
