The scene where a couple were in a collision with a coach in Windsor

An elderly man has had an operation to remove a leg after he was hit by a coach in Windsor.

The 90-year-old man was described by police today as in 'serious condition'.

The Windsor visitor is believed to be from Surrey. He was walking with his wife through Windsor Coach Park, next to Alexandra Park, when both were involved in a collision with a coach from Spain.

It happened at about 12.45pm. The man was airlifted to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where he remains. His wife suffered a head injury and has been released from hospital.

The driver of the coach was arrested at the scene on suspicion of dangerous driving and has been bailed until March 2.

Police want to speak to two members of the public who helped the couple after the accident. Officers released CCTV images.

Anyone who can help the police investigation is urged to phone 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
