Marr book: The making of a modern roadblock
BBC News reports today that drivers are facing delays after a lorry overturned and shed its load of journalist's Andrew Marr books.
It says: "The truck came off the A4 Bath Road in Theale, Berkshire, late on Tuesday night spilling boxes of the books. The carriageway was shut through the night and a clear up operation has started, but police warned the road could be closed until lunchtime.
"The driver was unhurt. It is thought almost 15 tonnes of Mr Marr's The Making of Modern Britain were spilt."
