Police said they had closed part of a road as the clear-up got under way following the incident involving a tractor in Maidenhead on Saturday.

The Thames Valley Police Maidenhead Twitter account posted a picture of the scene, writing: “Please avoid the A4 and frascatti way area of Maidenhead due to a 1 lane road closure. Clear up may take a while….”

Hayley Davies‏ joked online: “New sandpit in Maidenhead… send the kids down!”
