Three people have died on or near the M4 in Berkshire within a month and 12 days.

A pedestrian died in a lorry collision while walking between Junctions 5 and 4b on January 27.

The woman was reportedly seen on the eastbound carriageway at 4.15am heading towards London before the collision at around 4.30am.

She has not been named publicly.

Grandmother Pulvinder Dhillon died on March 7 after a black Nissan and a white van collided between junctions 11 and 12, setting one on fire.

“She was a beautiful, kind mother, mother-in-law, sister, Grandma and friend who was loved and respected by all she knew,” her family said in a statement.

Four days later, a man was found dead on land next to junction 4b near Langley.

His death is being treated as unexplained and a file will be prepared for the coroner.

Formal identification has not yet taken place, but the man’s family have been informed and are being supported by officers.
