Firefighters have been clearing up a fuel spillage on a main road in a market town following a collision between a lorry and a car.

It is understood the lorry began spilling about 700 litres (154 gallons) of diesel on to Peach Street in Wokingham, Berkshire, from 1400 BST.

The road, which was shut westbound between Luckley Path and Easthampstead Road, is due to reopen about 1900 BST.

It is thought the car may have punctured the lorry during the crash.

Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service's hazardous response unit also attended the scene, along with the police.
