A tractor driver has been left red-faced after most of his cargo of hay ended up in the road in Craufurd Rise today.
Eyewitness Seb Butt, owner of the Bear House Diner in Queen Street, was on his way into work at about 11.45am when he realised the lorry a few cars in front was stacked too high.
The top of the cargo clipped the railway bridge over the road, spilling a huge heap of hay onto the road.
Drivers have had to find an alternative route to and from town as they wait for the mess to be cleared up.
A Thames Valley Police spokeswoman confirmed police received a call at 11.52am after a 'considerable amount of hay had been dislodged from a trailer' of a farm vehicle.
Officers and an ambulance attended the scene.
Seb said the driver appeared to be uninjured and added: "I have never seen anything like that.
"I don't know how they are going to clear it all up."
The road is still to be cleared.
