Eyewitnesses near the scene, on the southbound carriageway near the Magnet Leisure Centre car park, reported a person was receiving treatment in the road shortly after 5pm.

One witness on Twitter, Olu Odeniyi, said he was at an appointment with a GP nearby when they had to leave to help the injured person.

Traffic is currently being diverted back around the mini roundabout nearby.

Police at the scene said there was an accident involving a pedestrian and a car and the pedestrian is receiving treatment.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said: "A man and car have been in collision at about 4.50pm."
