MOTORISTS heading to the M4 are being warned about delays after a lorry became stuck under a bridge notorious for the problem.

The incident, at King’s Way bridge on the A429 south of Malmesbury, is currently causing delays to drivers in both directions.

Police are on the scene directing traffic, which is reported to still be moving.

The bridge is an infamous trap for lorries that have misjudged its height.

Last autumn, two lorries became stuck in separate incidents within weeks.

More to follow.
