CUSTOMERS were trapped in Ikea's car park for up to three hours on it's first Sunday of trading.

The new Calcot store has been open just four days when the queue began.

Cars began queuing through the multistory car park with some frustrated motorists abandoning their cars until later in the day.

An Ikea spokesman told ITV the car park had to close this afternoon and staff were handing bottled water out to trapped drivers.

One motorist said they had been told the delays were due to an accident on the M4.

The new £10m store bought in an extra 40 people to manage traffic on the opening Thursday.
