A BUSY commuter route is facing more delays than normal this evening following an earlier accident.

Police, firefighters and paramedics are all on the scene of the crash, which is believed to have happened on Bath Road on Monday afternoon.

Drivers heading towards Calcot are being diverted by police vehicles and queues are starting to build heading out from the town centre.

People can still travel heading towards the centre of Reading, with the diversion in place from the Southcote Beefeater.
