One lane is closed on the M4 eastbound due to a road traffic accident involving an ambulance which has overturned.

The lane is closed between Junction 35 A473 (Pencoed) and Junction 34 A4119 (Miskin).

At approximately 11.40am this morning, Tuesday 19 April, we had reports that one of our Patient Care Service vehicles had left the eastbound carriageway of the M4 between junctions 34 and 35.

One of the Trust’s Hazardous Area Response Team vehicles was passing the scene and stopped to support, and we also sent a paramedic in a rapid response car and a crew in an emergency ambulance.

The male driver of the vehicle, the sole occupant, has been taken to the Royal Glamorgan Hospital.

His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening
