    So that's two incidents in the last four days alone. Roll on the Easter traffic!

    Once a few thousand more homes get built across Berkshire and cars are forced into using the hard shoulder of the M4 at peak times, incidents like this will be a daily events (and the emergency services will struggle to get through local and motorway traffic to deal with them quickly).

    Will the planners admit their errors before it's too late?
