A bin lorry became stuck in Berkshire as roads across the country have been melting in the heatwave.

Old Bath Road in Newbury was blocked after the refuse collection and recycling truck’s back wheels sank into the road surface, as the mercury went above 30 degrees in some parts of the UK.

The crew were thrown forward when the lorry suddenly lurched to a halt as the road collapsed under it.

The vehicle caused traffic problems in the town centre on Thursday as drivers tried to find ways around the blockage.

Thames Valley Police confirmed the road was closed “when a council refuse vehicle got stuck after the road appeared to open up”.
