The traffic incident was reported at 7.44am.

The M4 was hit by chaos earlier this month due to Insulate Britain protesters.

The group staged 10 days of protests over three weeks in England.

Thirty-nine activists were arrested by the police following their protests across the M1, M4 and the M25.


The group has claimed it will continue to blockade the roads around London until the Government takes action.

They said in a statement: “It’s incomprehensible that the Government is continuing to delay action on home insulation when we urgently need to cut our carbon emissions, eliminate fuel poverty and help hard-working families with their rising energy bills.

“Added to which, industry is crying out for the government to show some leadership and get behind a national retrofitting strategy.

“Come on Boris: get on with the job.”
