One lane blocked on Robin Hood roundabout following collision

MOTORISTS were forced to endure delays when driving through Newbury this afternoon when two lanes of the Robin Hood roundabout were blocked after a collision between two lorries.

The HGVs, which were travelling north towards the A34 and both from the same excavation company, were involved in the smash at around 11.45am.

Emergency services were called to the scene with paramedics assessing the two drivers with one complaining of back pain.

Both drivers were able to exit their vehicles.

Police remained on site to manage traffic until the lorries were removed.

As a result tailbacks along the northbound A339 were reported for most of the afternoon.

    How long will it be before one of these crashes into Victoria Park. Are children safe enough to play there or do WBC even care.

    Shame they don't take the A339 to Tot Hill junction to avoid Newbury
