HGV shut main road

THE main road through Whitchurch was shut for more than an hour when a heavy goods vehicle became stuck.

The lorry, owned by Goggins Transport of Liverpool, had driven south along High Street to cross the toll bridge to Pangbourne but could not because of the 7.5 tonne weight limit and caused traffic to build up behind it.

Police closed High Street north near the village entrance and guided drivers back up the road to give the lorry enough space to back into Eastfield Lane then turn out.
