A CRASH on the M4 near Swindon has led to one lane being closed.

A road traffic collision westbound between Junctions 16 and 17 caused extensive barrier damage, according to Highways England.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "We were called to reports of a single vehicle crash on the westbound side of the M4 near J17 (Chippenham) at 1.45pm today.

"A car had hit the central reservation.  No injuries to the male driver."

The two other lanes were closed while the vehicle was recovered and queues tailed back two-and-a-half miles.
