A busy route around Didcot has been closed after a cement lorry overturned.

Police were called to the Hawksworth roundabout on the A4130 after the lorry crashed shortly before 1pm, shedding cement on the carriageway.

Thames Valley Police spokesman Antonia Bairstow said the driver was not injured in the crash, and traffic was being diverted away from the area.

It is not yet known how long it will take to clear the road.

Hopefully the spilled cement will fill in some of the ridiculous holes, and generally improve the surface of the ring road. There are some real car killers appearing recently so drive carefully, especially under the bridge near Tesco.

I was waiting at a junction on the Broadway Didcot just about 20 minutes
before this happened and a Hanson cement mixer lorry when by with the driver more interested in looking at his mobile phone than looking where he was going. I wonder if it was the same one.
