A MAN died in an accident in Ogbourne St George yesterday afternoon.

Emergency services attended the accident, which forced the closure of the A346 between Chiseldon and Marlborough and in both directions during rush hour.

It is believed the crash involved a lorry and a car close to Ogbourne Street.

The male driver of a white Toyota was killed after colliding with the lorry. The driver of the lorry is not believed to have been injured. Police, along with fire crews and paramedics, were called to the scene at 3.30pm by a member of the public. The road closure remained in place for the majority of the evening and drivers were advised to find an alternative route.
