POLICE have closed a lane at the roundabout of Frascati Way and the A4 Bath Road in Maidenhead after the trailer of a tractor flipped over and spilled its load of grain.

Thames Valley Police have advised motorists to avoid the area after the incident, which happened before 4pm.

Two fire engines rushed to the scene to check no one had been trapped underneath the grain although the tractor driver himself had got to safety.

A tweet from the TVP Maidenhead account said: "Please avoid the A4 and Frascati way area of Maidenhead due to a 1 lane road closure. Clear up may take a while."
