Firefighters tackle garage fire in Maidenhead

A car that caught fire on the M4 caused traffic to come to a standstill this afternoon (Saturday).

Two Slough fire crews were called to junction five, heading eastbound towards London, after a Vauxhall Corsa caught alight at 1.30pm.

No people were harmed in the incident but all three lanes of the motorway were closed for five-10 minutes as firefighters moved the vehicle out of the road.

They then spent around 30 minutes putting out the fire after it had been taken aside.
