Trailer carrying dozens of hay bails loses its load on Highworth Road

A busy main road was closed this afternoon, after a trailer carrying dozens of hay bails split its load all over the highway, near to the A419.

Wiltshire Police were called to the incident, on Highworth Road – near to Honda’s North Gate – at around 3.55pm today, 7 August.

The road was closed for over an hour while the farmer recovered his load.

The road remains partially blocked, as Swindon Borough Council work to fix a hole in the road, caused by the trailer during the incident.
