MOTORISTS sat in nine-miles of queues this morning after a breakdown on the M4 motorway caused traffic to be at a standstill.

One car broke down on the eastbound carriageway between junction 10 at Wokingham and junction 8/9 at Maidenhead.

The breakdown meant one lane had to be closed.

Drivers also faced queues on roads leading onto the motorway.

The broken-down vehicle has now been recovered and traffic is starting to move freely.
