POLICE have closed off Station Road in Woolhampton after a vehicle hit the level crossing at Midgham station and broke one of the barriers.

British Transport Police and Thames Valley Police are attending the scene.

A spokesman for Network Rail, James Crook, confirmed: “A vehicle has hit the level crossing barrier at Midgham as it was closing.

“This will cause minor delays of around 10 minutes for trains in both directions.”
