M4 crash

Two people have died after a lorry collided with the minibus they were in on the M4 in Berkshire.

It happened on the eastbound side near Hungerford at 12.20pm.

Six other passengers inside the vehicle are hurt - three of them seriously.

The driver of the lorry has minor injuries.

Reports said the lorry had collided with the rear of the minibus and shunted it along the motorway.

Driver James LLoyd tweeted to say:

"M4 closed due to worst accident I’ve ever seen in many years of driving. Avoid area and if you’re caught in the tail back be patient....I promise you don’t want to get past it until emergency services are finished."

Thames Valley Police said:

"Anyone who may have seen what happened or who has dash-cam footage is asked to contact police."

At around 7.40pm, Highways England tweeted:

"Recovery and clear-up is almost complete on the eastbound J14 - J13, . We're hoping to re-open the carriageway soon. ."
