Three people in hospital as motorway accident causes long delays


Three people have been taken to hospital after an accumulation on the M4.

The rescue services were called at 13.35 on Sunday to a collision with several vehicles, which led to the eastbound lane being blocked.

Motorists faced severe delays in London between junctions 4 and 3 near Heathrow Airport.

Emergency services, including National Highways traffic officers, arrived at the scene and the westbound route was blocked to allow the air ambulance to land.

A spokesman for the London Ambulance Service said: “We were called at 1.35pm today (Sunday) for reports of a road traffic collision on the M4.

“We sent a number of resources, including three ambulances, a doctor in a fast emergency vehicle and an operations manager.

“Our crew treated patients on the spot and took three people to the hospital.”
