Drivers faced four miles of congestion and an hour-long delay after a funfair lorry overturned on a motorway.

A collision left the lorry spread across all three lanes of the M40 in Buckinghamshire between Stokenchurch and High Wycombe on Sunday afternoon.

Police were forced to close the road and divert traffic around that section of the motorway, with those caught in between directed through via the hard shoulder.

No one has been reported as hurt.
