AN ICY road has been closed off amid safety concerns following two car crashes earlier today.

Thames Valley Police confirmed Barkham Road in Finchampstead was closed between the mini roundabout at the Bull at Barkham and Bearwood Road due to ice.

The force pictured a blue VW car which had veered off of the road and crashed.

Highways England has been called to grit the road before it can be re-opened.
