M4-Traffic

Motorists had to bear with delays on the M4 this afternoon after a lorry carrying furry toys spilled its cargo.

Police were called to the third lane between junction 12 (Theale) and 13 (Chieveley) at 2.12pm. 

Thames Valley Police roads policing unit Tweeted: "M4 j13-12. Lorry lost its load of teddy bears. Lane 3 not a good place for their picnic. Crew from three mile cross en-route."

There's been a happy ending for the bears, however, as officers said they had all been safely recovered. 

"Their driver will be dealt with ref the insecure load," they said.
