Drivers have described a horror crash between two lorries and a minibus as the ‘worst accident they’ve ever seen’.

The M4 was closed today after the three vehicles collided near Newbury, Berkshire.

Thames Valley Police tweeted: ‘Officers have closed part of the M4 in Berkshire following a serious collision.

‘The eastbound carriageway between Junction 14 at Hungerford and 13 at Chieveley is likely to remain closed for several hours. Please avoid the area and take alternative routes.’
