A MAN from Henley has been charged with drink-driving after a bus and car collided on Reading Bridge.

A MAN from Henley has been charged with drink-driving after a bus and car collided on Reading Bridge.

Simon Narracott, 51, of Gainsborough Crescent, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving after the incident at 2.45pm on Tuesday.

Two people were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

The collision between the Range Rover and the bus closed the bridge to traffic for about two hours, causing congestion around the town.

Mr Narracott has been charged with driving a motor vehicle while above the legal alcohol level.

He has been bailed and will appear at Reading Magistrates' Court on August 11.

Last year, Mr Narracott ran for election to South Oxfordshire District Council and Henley Town Council as a representative of Henley Residents’ Group but failed to secure enough votes.

He remained as secretary of the party until its annual meeting in May when he stepped down and left the group as he was moving out of the town.
