THERE are severe delays through Reading this evening after an earlier crash on the motorway. 

One lane is closed due to the accident involving three vehicles and a broken down vehicle.

The affected area is the eastbound stretch from junction 11 (Reading) to 10 (Wokingham/Bracknell).

As a result, there is congestion to M4 J12 (Theale).

Travel time is around 60 minutes and roads around Reading are hectic as a result, as people are being diverted off the M4.

The broken down vehicle has cleared, but lane one remains closed for the accident.
