UPDATE: Coach collision victim, 90, remains in 'serious' condition
The scene where a couple were in a collision with a coach in Windsor

An elderly man who was in a collision with a tourist coach in Windsor remains in a 'serious' condition and is likely to be in hospital for the 'foreseeable future', police said today.

The 90-year-old suffered serious leg injuries by the turning circle at Windsor Coach Park in Alma Road at 12.45pm on Saturday.

The pensioner, believed to be from the Surrey area, had an operation on Monday at the John Radcliffe Hospital, in Oxford, to remove one of his legs.

His 80-year-old wife also suffered a minor head injury in the incident.

The couple were crossing the area while walking to their car, when they were hit by a coach turning near the Garden Cafe, which had dropped off passengers.

Officers have appealed for a man and woman who rushed over together to come to the aid of the couple to contact them.

The force has released a CCTV image of the two pedestrians, who they say can help them with their investigation.

Police also want to speak to any members of the public who saw the incident.

Anyone with information should contact PC 5278 Stephen Flynn on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

* Police arrested a Spanish driver from a Spanish-registered coach on suspicion of dangerous driving at the scene and he has been bailed until March 2.
